I just replaced a BD Rom drive in my newly built HTPC thinking something was wrong with the drive. It worked fine to install Windows but afterwards it is not recognized by apps like MakeMkV etc.

Well the drive wasn't the problem, I now see that the drive is being recognized in the Device Manager as a scsi drive and not a sata.

I'm not sure what I can do. I've checked the bios and it's seen as SATA. The BD drive is in SATA slot 0 and my SSD is in slot 1. AHCI is on.

Any ideas?

Every "Disk drive" (SATA SSD/HDD for example) and "DVD/CD-ROM drive" (SATA CD/DVD/BD drive for example) is a SCSI drive under Windows (perhaps because Windows uses SCSI block commands to communicate with a storage drive). Can't you play DVD / BD movie with PowerDVD, TMT, MPC-HC, WMP etc. at all?

MPC-HC won't play anything in that drive, but it sees the drive fine (and I can explore it). I'm not sure MPC-HC can play blu-rays though.

I got MakeMKV to briefly recognize a disc (I changed discs and it worked). So I then thought it was a bad blu-ray, but as soon as I ejected the disc it won't recognize anything again.

I can use Windows Explorer just fine on any disc.

Reason I mentioned SCSI was because the same BD drive in my other Win 7 PC shows it as ATA and not SCSI. Perhaps it doesn't mean anything.

Well it seems the problem was Remote Desktop.

If I operate MakeMKV from the actual HTPC and not remote in from my office PC it recognizes discs fine.
