    I have found the solution to Missing CD/DVD internal and external drives.

    To find and be able to use Missing CD/DVD drives

    Go to Start/run/regedit regedit.

    Open it then go and open the folders in this order (It goes from the outer folders into the inner ones) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINES / SYSTEM/ CurrentControlSet / Control / Class/ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

    Then inside you should see a File that says UPPERFILTERS and/or LOWERFILTERS If only one is there it is fine. Delete them both, restart your computer and will reinstall your driver(s), and your drive or drives will show up in My Computer with the rest of your drives.

Blank cd's are not recognized by the Dell Inspiron cd burner


I would first try removing the device in the control panel, system, device manager and then reinstalling the driver. There may be a problem caused by a windows update. In general CD drives rarely go bad. If the CD works say for a music CD then it should work for blank cd. You may also want to check the CD type. If you accidentally used a DVD, that won't work and in some of the older CD drives, they may not handle every type of CD format.

Good Luck

I have Dell Inspiron 5160 laptop. I want ot replace the CD-RW/DVD with a CD burner. What should I be looking for or is it better to go with an external DVD burner?


Well a CD-RW/DVD ROM is a CD burner so you really dont need to replace it. Unless you meant replace it with a DVD burner then...

The best thing you can do is go to the Dell website and search your notebook/model number and look for the upgrade drive and buy it from them. If its to expensive search ebay or the web with the info you found on the Dell website (combo drive name + model number) and find one for a cheaper price.

Spindle for cd drive broken


I'd suggest you change the drive,, DVD DRIVES FOR LAPTOPS are usually standered parts Take the drive out and buy one and replace it. I dont think you laptop might require a special drive Laptop usually carry standered drives meaning any one should work.
