My dvd drive does not appear anywhere. Its not in device manager, the registry thing don't work and microsoft is no help at all. Please help.


Sorry. Not enough information.
The DVD drive must be recognized in Boot up before you can use it. Check your owner's manual or have a knowledgeable friend help.
Chances are, a new DVD drive will be needed. They are very easy to change on a desktop computer.
I need:
Your make and model for the computer
Is it a laptop?
Does the DVD drive door open?
What operating system? Xp, Vista or Windows 7
Has the DVD ever worked?
Did you install a program and the drive disappeared?
Do you use bit torrent or limewire?
Do you have a driver disc for the DVD Drive or computer?

Hi brianlcrensh

It sound like you DVD drive is gone :O(
First bee sure that the DVD´s recorded are working normal in another DVD ex at your work. IF yes, then I could bee 2 solutions :
1. you have to less RAM and the processor is a old one and maybe you need to upgrade your machine.

2. your DVD drive is not working. The DVD drive and CD drive are running separately and that means you could still use this drive as a CD drive.
IF the drive is NEW you have the possibility to return it to the store and get a new one without costs.

Normally strange sounds on DVD drives means that the drive is damaged !! Today normally you can get a DVD drive for around 40 $ so making to much Trouble shooting and that drive could make many hours go for only 40 $. My last DVD drive did also make strange sounds and I did chance and now it is working fine.

TO CHANCE THE DVD DRIVE JUST OPEN THE COMPUTER AND REPLACE THE NEW DVD DRIVE IN IT (MAKE SURE THAT THE DVD DRIVE ARE MASTER OR SLAVE, LIKE YOUR OTHER DRIVE) OPEN THE COMPUTER AND IF IT TELLS YOU YOU HAVE A NEW CONFIGURATION THEN PRESS ACCEPT/SAVE TO C-MOS. WAIT A FEW SECONDS WHEN THE COMPUTER IS IN WINDOWS (IT TELLS YOU THAT THE WINDOWS HAS FIND NEW HARDWARE AND AFTER FEW SECONDS IT TELLS YOU THAT THE HARDWARE IS INSTALLED) AND NOW YOU SHOULD HAVE THE POSSIBILITY TO USE IT

here is a video to see how to do chance a dvd drive :

Hello my Dell Studio 1435, it can read CD but not reading DVD... it give noise when i put DVD..


Try using a good quality DVD cleaner first. The lens for cd/dvd are different so one may work if the other is dirty. If cleaning does not work then the dvd lens may be out of alignment or broke. With today's prices it is cheaper to replace the drive $30-40 than try to repair it. Hope this helps.

DVD drive doesn't work


It's likely that you have a bad drive. Before rushing out to buy another one, remove the device for CD/DVD drive under Device Manager and restart the computer. Let Windows reinstall the driver and see if that helps.

Additionally, you might want to completely remove the drive, check the connections on the end, and also use compressed air to blow out inside where the connection is made.

If after all that, still not working ...bad drive :(
