✔ Best Answer
Just a point of clarification. You have a DVD writer, not a DVD rom (Read Only Memory).

Why are you using S3?

When the DVD drive does show, how is it listed in Windows Device Manager?

It is listed normaly, with other device (virtual scsi - deamon drive) under DVD CD ROM DRIVES section, like PIONEER DVD-RW dvr 115D Scsi cd rom drive. But when computer goes in standby mode, after resume DVD is not present in my computer at all. Cant find it even by adding new hardwere. Only when I restart it, it shows normaly.
In bios is sett that computer goes in S3. Optionaly i can change to s1, but I dont know diference.
If You have any sugestion or solution, pls help.
Thank You.

Try setting the BIOS to S1 and use minimal power savings. S3 shuts down the hard drives. The process of waking things back up doesn't work that well with all hardware. I have seen and experienced that same problem with IDE hard drives. The solution is to not allow the drives to go into sleep mode. If you prefer you can try setting the time to suspend the drives to as long a period as available. That may solve the problem if you shut down overnight. If you run 24/7 then you may need to set drives to NEVER.

Click on the link below to learn more about the various ACPI modes. There are tweaks within each mode to further refine the settings. If you have the patients and you experiment with the settings you may be able to keep S3 and solve the problem.

Thank You very much, I tryed to put in s1, but same thing happend. Invisible after resume. I need shorter period of waiting to enter sleep, so i cant put it never or longer. I was looking for settongs where I can set DVD not to enter in a sleep, but cant find. I will try to change my DVD drive with new one on SATA. Maby that is solution :)
Thank You anyway for helping me, very kind of You!

Is the link below for your motherboard?

Why do you say you need a shorter period of time?

If the above link is for your motherboard then look at Pgs. 51-52 for help with those settings. S1 should still allow you to use some power saving settings without suspending the drives.
