Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

CD\DVD Drive disappears in Windows

I've found the Microsoft Fix-it tool often resolves this issue:

if the automated tool doesn't fix the issue, then execute the manual steps for your os listed below the Fix-it Tool.

it doesnt recognize a dvd rom is connected to cp it says cd rom driver not found


Reseat the drive if it is removable.
See if you can boot to the drive using a bootable CD (Windows CD etc) If you can boot to it, then it is a software issue.
run the fixit utility here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/982116 if that doesn't resolve, then use the manual steps listed below the fixit tool. If that still doesn't resolve, the drive is likely bad.
