My computer will not recognize my cd/dvd drive, there are no optical drives listed in device manager


In the optical drives or ATAPI drives section of Device Manager, try right clicking and choosing "scan for hardware changes." If the CD/DVD drive still doesn't show up, you might want to try opening the computer up and resetting the cables going to the drive (both the power and data cables).

The drive was working before, right?

HP Compaq notebook with a philips dvd-ram won't read


If you can see the CD Drive icon in My computer, it shows that at least Windows recognises the drive. If you are unable to see the drive listed in explorer (not the cd name but the actual drive icon), then please post a reply.

Other than that, you are describing what I think may be a faulty drive. If you open the case, check to see if the drive cable is in good contact with the connector and motherboard.

I have a compaq presario cq 60 laptop with Vista - i don't understand how to access the CD-ROM drive - I would normally expect it to appear as an additional drive using the Explore function, but I can't...


Normally it would show up in "my Computer" as a drive, if it is not, then the computer is acting like it is not installed or not enabled. Go to the device manager and look for the dvd drive there and see what the properties say. Put the computer on its back and with a small phillips screwdriver, remove the screw that holds the drive to the motherboard. Now flip the laptop back on its feet and insert an open paperclip into the small hole in the door of the dvd drive bezel, this willphysically trip the door to open. Pull the door and tray out and keep pulling and the rest of the drive will follow. Power up your laptop with the drive missing and access "My Computer" and see if anything changes. Now,power down the laptop, remove the battery....wait 30 seconds and slide the drive in and make sure it seats all the way in, replace the hold down screw, replace the battery and power it up. Let windows recognize the drive and load drivers for it. If it does not read the drive, there may be an issue with either the interface on the drive or the socket on the motherboard.

Dvd drive bay does not lock


When this happens the drive lock is faulty, or there is a control problem.

Unplug laptop power cord and remove battery for ten minutes.

If the DVD still does not lock when there is no power, and when you connect everything back, then DVD latch has a fault, probably a mechanical problem.

If laptop is new get it replaced, or get the DVD unit replaced. Contact the retailer for service and replacement conditions.

either take it to a local repair facility or buy a new drive and install it yourself
