    Maybe you can say what you did differently from when it did show your CD and DVD drives?
    Did you install any thing new, or forget (hey, I've forgotten before) to connect the power and data connectors for each drive?

Check device manager and see if it is shwoing over there.

Try to reboot computer in safe mode and check.

At Last try going to BIOS and Check the CD/DVD drive showing up there or not.

If it is there then best thing you can do is start system with Last Known good configuration.

Where to look to put a disc in my all in one dell


Many new computers do not come with a CD/DVD drive. This may be the case with your All-In-One Dell. Check your owners manual to see if a CD/DVD drive is included. You can also look on the left or right sides of the screen/monitor to see if there is a CD/DVD slot.

If you find that you do not have a CD/DVD drive, an external one can be purchase for $50-100 from numerous places.

Try running diagnostics on your computer to see if you have a hardware problem. You should have a CD that came with the computer that has "Diagnostics and Utilities" listed under contents. Boot form this CD and run the extended diagnostics.
If you don't have the CD you can go toTo bootfrom a CD disk, power on your computer and tap the key to bring you to the "One time boot menu". Insert the CD into the top CD/DVDdrive and then select "Boot from CD/DVD" and hit key. Select the "Run the 32 Bit Dell Diagnostics.

If all tests pass then reload OS ( Operating Software ).

Power Calibration error


powe calibration error reffers to lens laser power
in other words the laser doesn't have enough power to write CD/DVD at specified speed

try to clean the lens (there are special CD-s for that)
and try to burn the cd or DVD at slower speed

but slowly your cd writer is dying

I have a compaq presario SR2150NX and i need to replace the CD drive. What should i buy


The solution is that do not replace the cd drive !!
You could buy a new DVD writer drive which can be very useful.
You can use both "cd drive" and the new "dvd drive" at a time.
New DVD drive comes only for rs.1200/- to 1500/- .(LG,Samsumg or moserbaer).

Yes ! you can operate them normally as usual.
Only call your computer engg. to make connections or the shopman to fit the dvd and cd drive.

LG DVD drive stopped reading DVD's


Try re-installing the drivers. If that doesn't help get a new drive. Optical drives are one of the first things to break in a computer. Of course make sure everything is connected properly.
