    Default DVD drive not recognized in windows 8

    Windows 8 is installed from DVD drive and can also boot from DVD, but Windows 8 does not recognize the drive after the operating system is loaded. How can I get drivers loaded for this version of Windows?

    Update: If I boot with the Windows 8 DVD in the drive, ignore the option to boot from the CD or DVD, when the OS loads, the drive is recognized and I can use it for that session. If I reboot without the DVD in the drive, it is gone again.

    Does anyone here know whats wrong? How can I fix it...Thanks in advance!
