Intel Rapid Storage Technology & CD/DVD

Can anyone tell me if uninstalling the Intel Rapid Storage Techonology would cause issues with the CD/DVD? The system is recognizing it as it shows up when you view hte computer but programs can't access it. I have run the troubleshooter in Windows and it couldn't detect any problems. The only thing that has changed is that I have installed the Rapid Storage since it was causing my laptop to run slow and giving me errors. Since uninstalling, my laptop has performed nicely except for the CD rom now.


I need to get this to working so I can burn some CDs.

Look for an update to the chipset drivers for your motherboard, see if there are any yellow or red "bangs" in the control panel. If none are present, and there are no issues with windows update then try reinstalling the Intel drivers.

Good luck.
