Ok I have a TS-L632D Ver.3 DVDRW drive. It isnt located anywhere in the computer. It powers up but no drive is indicated on my computer, device manager and the firmware that I try to load up...says no drive detected and firmware not compatible with drive. SO I have no idea what to do. I unistalled my hard drive and rebooted I got nothing. I tried to install the firmware...nothing. I am lost and I know that the techs would have a hard time. So its not located in the device manager, my computer and firmware says no drive detected and firmware not compatible with drive....what shall I do. I have typed up many problems to this and I will have to keep asking and telling you where my progess is going so far. Someone must know.....
On the bottom of the notebook under the DVD drive push the latch to eject the DVD module. Once the module is ejected gently re-insert the module using both thumbs until you hear a click. Your DVD should now be recognized by the computer.

PS You are correct,As long as a player/burner has power attached to it it wil light up and run but this had nothng to do iwith it communicating with the computer. This only had to do with the mechanics of the device.
hah. last time i had this happen it was hardware failure on the cd/dvd drive... i hope this isnt the case!
these drives always have satisfactory drivers in windows itself. in your device manager, (control panel--> system-- hardware tab--device manager), does it show your drive in the right place? or is it below in the yellow question mark category indicating that there's a problem?
from your descrition, it sound a bit like you have a bad disk in there not a bad drive, but that's just a guess at this point.
in the device manager, if you "uninstall" your drive, on reboot, the drivers will be installed again ( I assume you have windows xp?). this may help refresh your drivers...
I remember in an older laptop, I upgraded to windows xp service pack 3, and it was that service pack that made my drive at weird, so i went back to sp2
dont worry all u need to do is that shut down the computer first and then take the dvd drive out of the computer and then let it be like that for one minute and then put the dvd drive back in and then turn on the computer and then check in my computer and it should be visible ini my computer and it will definately work and then delete the upper filter and the lower filter from the registry and restart the computer once again and it will defiantely help u out...good luck...
