    hey guys, pretty frustrating situation here. i have a 27 inch iMac on osx 10.8.5
    bootcamp running windows 7 64 bit
    i want to install a game using the dvd on my windows side when i realized….great my external dvd is not being recognized. its not under device manager. even the dvd/cd drop down isn't there. i checked "printer and other devices" its not there. the external dvd player is being powered. just not recognized
    it doesn't get recognized in either osx or windows 7.
    pretty frustrating as i just used it a couple days ago to install windows 7 via bootcamp. The dvd drive was showing up just fine and it even when holding down option key upon startup it would show the dvd player. now nothing. someone please help
