My dvd drive is not working it is not showing its on my computer folder.I am using windows 7 recently i had this problem so can u help me ..


make sure both the power pin and sata pin are connected properly ,if both the wires are connected properly and still having the problem goto run and type "compmgmt.msc"(without quotes) and select disc management if the dvd drive is showing below the hard disks means your dvd drive is working fine only thing you have to do is to right click on the CD-Rom 0 and change drive letter and paths to it
.if the CD ROM option is not seen in disk management then you have to go to the device manager option under computer management and expand cd/dvd -rom drives and you will find your dvd drive model if not that means that your dvd drive has got hardware problem

I can not pull up my cd/dvd drive, it is gone of my computer.


Not knowing the model or operating system you have,I'll assume it's xp. Right click "my computer" & hit manage from the drop down box. Now hit "disk management", it should be seen in the lower window. If not,it may be a bad drive. The last thing to check is under BIOS setup. Re-boot & press f1 or whatever key it says during post to access it. The drive should show up under IDE devices, if not it's definately bad.

If it is a SATA drive, check the manual of the motherboard for SATA options/configuration in BIOS.
If it is an IDE drive, I suspect a bad configuration.
Set the jumper in CS (cable select) mode. You may connect it to the primary (end) or to the secondary (middle) connector of the IDE cable. Be sure there is no other drive on the same cable. Turn on your computer and verify if there is any changes in BIOS.
If the drive is not seen in BIOS the cable or the unit may be damaged or incompatible with your computer.
If the drive is seen in BIOS turn the computer off.
Now, you may add any other drive (if any) on the remaining connector on the same cable as it follows :
- set the jumper as Master or Cable Select if you connect the drive to the primary connector (end), or
- set the jumper as Slave or Cable Select if you connect the drive to the secondary connector (middle).

How do I open a cd to transfer it to my pc? I have my resume on a cd that someone made for me using his laptop, When I go to My Computer, there isnt anything that shows that it is recognizing the cd drive,...


Put a store purchased CD or dvd in the drive and see if it is seen by computer.
If so, remove it and place your cd in the drive.
If you get a message, format not recog., find out what format or was used to copy cd.
If you are useing VISTA and wish to view a doc. made on a win98 machine, you will have problems.

If the cd/dvd drive is not seen under mycomputer, you may have a damaged drive or may need to reconfigure it to be seen by your computer.
Check your jumper settings on the drive.
But first try a new disk and see what comes up.

USB DRIVE NOT SEEN


If your usb drive is not seen, then its one of two problems, you have a network drive interfering or you have a device taking over the drive letter like a cd or hard drive.

To manually set it, start control panel. click on administrative tools. Then computer management. Finally, click on disk management. It will show all your attached drives. Right click on the drive and click Change drive letter and path. Remove the existing letter and add a new one. It should show up.

If that doesn't work, your usb drive is damaged or possibly the usb system.

I have a dell optiplex 270 and my computer does


If the drive is seen in BIOS but not in Windows, then this should resolve:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060

If the drive is not seen in BIOS, Reseat the power and data cables, and reboot and see if the drive is seen. If not, then boot to BIOS, turn on Caps Lock, Scroll Lock, and NUMLOCK, then press ALT+E (system should Beep once), Then Alt+F (Beep) then ALT+B to reboot Then gp back to BIOS and see if the drive is seen.

If drive still not detected, replace the drive

Phillips external hard drive


There is a chance that the hard drive itself is at fault and the computer cannot recognize it try using it as a slave drive in computer. and use a recovery cd from boot to check it out
You could use thee ultimate boot cd (download) to check it
