Cd dvd drive not recognized

I have an Acer aspire 5100-5674 notebook.
The cd dvd drive will not show up in bios or device manager. I did the filters and bios system defaults. I just replaced the drive and nothing has worked.
The driver will power and act like its reading but nothing happens. I called acer and they were no help. They wanted me to install a patch for Power dvd which did not work because the program was never on my system. I have been all new ideas. I know it could be the motherboard but want exhaust all other ideas before going there. I am open to new ideas.

Thank You

Is Your Jumper Configuration Correct? Try Taking out the drive booting the computer into your os.. then turn off the computer then try putting the drive back into the computer.

and are you sure its compatible with your pc??

Hi, it is usual to drives not recognized if it is new and connected to the system. Now, try this one to make it active. Go to Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, Administrative Tools, Computer Management.
Under Computer Management, expand Storage->Disk Management. On the results panel, Right Click the Volume(X:) then click Mark Partition as Active or click Reformat.

*I hope this fixes your problem. If you have problems, please drop me a comment and I'll gladly help you.

Acer aspire 5740 DVD not recognized


Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

Cd/dvd drive not displayed in Bios or Device Manager


Your drive has failed and needs to be replaced. The controller in the drive is probably the culprit, the drive is still receiving power but cannot communicate with the computer.

My Laptop no longer recognizes that it has a DVD/CD drive


If you can, remove unit from laptop and start laptop without CD/DVD. It is usually fairly simple to remove. Maybe a few screws in bottom of laptop. Cut off laptop and reinstall. Restart and windows should find it.

I can,t found cd/dvd icon in my computer And i can,t play any cd or dvd I have Notebook Acer ( aspire 5635WLMI )


This may be as simple as the fact that the BIOS settings could be set to make the drive not appear, or it could be a defective drive. Try to check your BIOS settings to be sure it is set either to "AUTO" or to the drive itself. If it is setup in bios but it does not recognize there, it is probably a defective drive. Also, check device manager in windows and see if the drive shows there. If it shows there but will not play a disc it is more than likely defective....
