    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.

How do I Install my LG GCC-4320B


ok take this step to connect the cd 0r dvd drive

To install an external DVD drive:
  1. When purchasing a new drive be sure to understand the many formats available: DVD, DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+/-R, DVD+/-RW are a few for example. More recent technologies include DVD-DL, HD DVD and Blu-Ray Disc. A decent DVD drive should be able to read and write both "+" and "-" technologies and also support recordable (R) and re-writable (RW) technology. Essentially look for a DVD+/-RW drive if you plan on recording DVD's, or just a plain DVD drive for reading DVD's (movies, games, etc). There are a variety of speeds from 2x-16x for a wide spectrum of users and needs; higher speeds will record faster.
  2. If you have a USB connection on your computer you can use an external drive. The advantage to an exterior drive is that you can use it on other computers as well.
  3. To install an external DVD, just follow the instructions provided with the drive.
To install an internal DVD drive:
  1. Look for a DVD with the letters RW on the box. This is so you can read disks and record them as well. Make sure the speed rating is 16X and that the DVD is dual layer so that it takes care of the latest technology.
  2. Read the instructions that come with the DVD. It may require you to load the provided CD software before installing the DVD player. Leave the disk in your CD ROM player for the rest of the procedure.
  3. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the computer (goes to the wall socket of your house.)
  4. Open the case of the computer.
  5. Locate the hard disk or CD drive. Most have two connections and can only be snapped in place one way. One connection is for data and one for power.
  6. Check to see if your computer mounts the DVD/CD ROM drives from the inside or if they are pushed through the front panel (you may have to remove the plastic panel on some models.)
  7. Carefully remove the plastic “knock-off?? cover on the outside of your computer. Make sure you do this only when you are ready to install the DVD drive.
  8. Slide the DVD drive into an empty compartment or bay. If it’s an older computer you can secure it with screws that come with the DVD drive. Many newer computers have spring clips to secure the drive in place.
  9. Connect the DVD drive to the data cable. The data cable is wide like a ribbon and is also called a ribbon cable and has a red stripe on one side. There are two or three connectors on the data cable. One is connected to the circuit board, one is connected to your CD drive or hard disk and one in the middle (optional third connector) is usually not connected to anything. Use the middle connector for the DVD drive. If your data cable only has two connectors replace it with the one that is generally included with the new drive.
  10. Hook the DVD to the power connector. This is a normal round looking cable. There are usually several power connectors in the computer.
  11. If you don’t have an available power connector, then you can buy a “Y?? connector to hook up to the existing power cable. Unhook the power connector and hook it to one side of the “Y?? and hook the DVD to the other side of the “Y??.
  12. Re-assemble the cover and plug the computer back in.
  13. When you run Windows up it should look for the drivers for the new DVD player and automatically locate and load them from the CD ROM that you left in the CD player from the first step.

thanks

I am not able to install it.The windows is recognising the LG player.


Hey,

Cd and dvd drives are installed automatically on windows when they are connected properly. if your drive is not installing then your computers windows has problems, I would insist that you use recovery cd's to restore the computer to original state or use the windows installation cd to install windows to the computer again.

Note that the cd / dvd drive may work outside of windows, so you may be able to install windows with the drive even though it doesn't work in windows. check bios if the drive is detected there or not.

heres some info on the bios, how to get there and how to use it.

you may need to change the boot order so that the cd starts before the hard drive.

All of a sudden my computer lost contact with CD and DVD it sees them but will not load drivers. this is on a LG CD RW CED - 8083B and a Compac DVD - 115.


Go to start and right click on My computer then properties/device manager. Go to DVD/CD ROM and right click and select uninstall.
Reboot your system and windows will locate it and reinstall it.
Do this one drive at a time.

Installation


You will need to install the software driver in order to make the burner work with the computer.
Normally the driver can be installed from and included CD or by downloading it from the manufacturers site - BUT there is a problem, Windows 98 drivers are almost NEVER supported with new software anymore. Chances are, you will have to locate a 3rd party site to obtain the needed driver.
If you provide the model number of the drive I MAY be able to locate one for you.

My DVD writer don't write dvds


you changed the dvd from one machine to the other? well, then you'll need to download drivers for that other computer, for the dvd that moved..this is a usual situation. Now, unless we know the computer make and operating system of the second computer, it's not simple to find the driver location(which is most likely on the computer makers website)

Try uninstalling the current driver, then applying the updated driver, worst case scenerio is you get the current driver again
