Make sure that the cd rom is getting enough power test all leads that are attached to the cd/dvd drive and make sure they have a secure dust free connections or just replace them they might be bad/faulty

Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question / exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver or select properties general troubleshoot

if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this dvd rom restart your computer then plug them back in this should activate the found new hardware wizard

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
hope this helps

SOURCE: dvd drive not detected

If you have some experience in opening up the PC. remove the main cover & unplug the power connector & the Data Cable from the DVD Drive. ( the conputer power has to be switched off) Replug back the cables as it were & start the PC.

It should detect by now

Describe how you insert a dvd into a laptop


Hi Eunice, just want to clarify, for lenovo notebook if it doesn't have DVD drive you can use external DVD drive to access DVD CD. DVD external drive is just plug and play device once attached in your USB port, it will automatically detected and once detected you can use it already. Just install Burner application to burn some files if your DVD is capable of burning CD.

My cdrw burner is not functioning


Pull and replace the optical media device

This may not be the easiest chore you ever have as with Dell, their proprietary techniques are often called for in the absence of a technician who knows these techniques.

Service at Dell facilities if available or preferred.

Drive Can't Burn DVDs


Depends on your burning software and drivers installed for it. I have seen windows not detect some DVD burners correctly.

Will not burn any dvds


Try upgrading the firmware.

2.) Try the drive on another computer to see if it works.

3.) if it does you might need to Format and Reinstall on your computer.

but it does sound as if the problem is with your drive rather than your pc if you got warrenty i'd suggest you take it back if not then try it on anoter computer to ensure its the drive before getting a new one

DVD-RW drive not detected in my laptop by SOME software


I am asuming your using XP, this happened to me a few years ago, i searched google and found a forum that had instructions on editing a registry key to fix the problem but i wasn't able to see the drives in the device manager at all, so check that first and make sure they are there and try reinstalling the device drivers,using windows update or manually search for newest version of the drivers, if all that fails try reinstalling the applications your having issues with, if that fails you can try getting another application to replace the ones that aren't working, try alcohol 120% or Nero, those are about the best out especially a120 however it would require a purchase.
