The easiest way to resolve this issue is re- install the driver of your CD rom. It should solve the issue else i'll tell you the other way then.

    Windows Vista – Missing CD/DVD-Rom drive





    UPDATE



    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4­D36E965-E325-11 CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}



    Apparently it seems that this is an age old fix for even XP
    systems. If you venture to the registry key above by doing the
    following steps:



    Click on the start menu.

    If this is a Vista machine in the search box type in “regedit” without the quotation marks.

    Maximize the HKLM and then go ahead and browse until you reach the key listed above.

    In the right panel you’ll see something along the lines of
    “UpperFilter” and “LowerFilter” you want to click on each “filter” key
    and hit delete. Click yes when it asks to confirm if you wish to delete
    the key.

    Restart Windows.

Drivers not working. Can not play any dvd,cd's.Its been about a week. Reinstalled drivers on Help and Support, but still not working. Any Ideas?


When you say Drivers not working, can you please confirm if you are referring to the CD Drives ?

If yes you can first make sure that the Drives are detected in Windows Explorer.

Click on Start Then click on "Computer" or "My Computer"

See if the CD / DVD drive is detected

If the drive is detected in Explorer and not able to read the discs, try various discs of different brands.

If none of the disc is readable then the Drive is gone back and you will need to replace it.

In case the Drive is not detected in the Windows Explorer then you can check if the device is detected the Device Manager.

To open device manager Press the Windows key + R and type devmgmt.msc

Press Enter of click OK

It will open the device manager

look under CD/DVD drive if there is any yellow exclamation mark.

If you see the Drive listed with an Exclamation then follow the steps to delete lower filter and upper filter from the Windows registry Editor.

Chances are either your drive has gone bad, or you have a bad Malware on your system. Go to http://www.malwarebytes.org and get the free version. Install it, and update it, then run it. If it finds stuff, do what the prompts tell you to do, and that should fix the problem. If not, then get another dvd drive. You shouldn't need special drivers beyond what MS Windows has to make your drive work.

DVD/CD-ROM PROBLEM


The yellow exclamation mark means that the driver for the DVD/CD-ROM is corrupted. You will need to find the drivers for your drive and re-install it. This should be easy enough to do: find the brand name of your drive and go to the website of the manufacturer, then locate their drivers page and find the specific driver for your product, then download and install the driver and restart your computer and the drive should work.
Please rate if this works for you, Thanks!
