If your DVD drive isn't showing in Windows or in the BIOS then either the motherboard has a damaged controller or the DVD drive is damaged.

3:) eject or remove the device, re-insert ( possible dirty-bad-loose Connection.

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

Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor

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.

You are going to need an external CD-Rom to fix that problem, there is no way around it. Some people have used their original os CD from asus to make a Thumb drive solution that emulates a CD, but you first need a CD to do this. Try shopping at Geeks.com for the external drive, or try using a spare cd or dvd rom with their external cable kit.

I use a cable like this for my external CD or Hard drive hookups.
