    CD/DVD burner will not work in AHCI mode, do you have a fix?


    Hello,

    I recently upgraded to Windows 10 and an SSD. I know you are supposed to run in AHCI for an SSD, and did a full Windows 10 install after enabling this setting in BIOS. Now my CD/DVD burner will spin up, but will not read disc's in Windows.

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Thanks,
    RH

    Why not set the DVD in IDE mode? Normally you can change mode per device. Check your BIOS and if you can set only the DVD in IDE mode.

    Unfortunately, my the BIOS on my MOBO (4 going on 5 years old) does global changes only, not a per device change.

    Check the SATA cable, replace it, if you have a spare.

    I have tried three other spares and two new ones. This is the third system the drive has been in ( circa 2007 ), so there is a possibility that drive just does not support AHCI.

    I have six SATA 6.0 ports on my MSI board and have tired them as well, and no go. I am running the CD/DVD drive, 850 EVO120Gb, and WD 1 Tb Black drive. Both the SSD and HDD work perfectly fine in both IDE mode and AHCI.

    The link below is the MOBO I have.

    Yes, probably old models support IDE legacy mode only, not AHCI.

    What model is the optical drive? It'd be nice to look it up to see whether AHCI would be an issue with it. (Are there really SATA drives that don't support AHCI? Not a rhetorical question.)

    (One of my mottoes: Why speculate when the facts are available?)

    Probably old SATA drivers do not support AHCI, but cannot tell for sure. In old systems I use IDE mode to be sure, I reserve AHCI for newer systems only.

    I had troubles with optical drives working under AHCI on my old Phenom 1 computer. However AHCI implementation was cheesy at best for that 790FX+SB600 chipset.

    OP's chipset is also AMD Hudson D3. Does anybody know how it's AMD AHCI implementation for recent chipsets? I know for sure older ones had some issues.

    That's why I prefer legacy modes for old systems and keep new stuff for the newer computers. To be on the safe side compatibility-wise. Besides I can hardly notice any performance difference between IDE mode and AHCI. I would say it's mostly a phychological factor, that is you think is faster and you feel better.
