DVD drive is not recognized in Windows 8

Suddenly I realised that my CDROM/DVDROM is missing in Windows 8. BIOS does detect it as usual.

The issues is inside Windows. The registry trick helped to solve it:

reg.exe add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Controller0" /f /v EnumDevice1 /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001


Little bit annoying, I do not understand why I should use registry for a very standard feature on my PC.
