RD120 Win2008 X64 cd-rom drive - TIP

<p>&nbsp;</p> <p>After&nbsp;successfully installing windows 2008 X64 using the easy setup cd, I found that when the&nbsp;OS finally boots I cannot access the contents of any cd or dvd on that drive.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>I have updated the firmware with the same drive with a boot cd but still nothing from windows even if on the device manager the drive is ok....</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Open&nbsp;the device manager and double click on the IDE controller that the cd-rom is on, then on the advanced properties tab uncheck the DMA option.</p>
