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
you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back 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
if there is a small hole on the panel of your dvd drive push a staightened paper clip inside until you feel it press down this will open up the drive
hope this helps

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.
