Restart the laptop and when it starts up continually press f2 until you get into the BIOS setup. In there look for the drives and see if the CD/DVD is recognized in there. If its not you might have to activate the drive. If that doesn't work you can try resetting the drive

Try turning on the player and navigating to the setting from the main menu. Change the protocol from MTP to MSC (or MSC to MTP, depending on whatever the current protocol mode is) and reconnect it.

Have a sony cd player in my desktop that is not being recoginized. won't play any cd not able to even put the original cd software in to reinstall.

A CDROM does not have to be installed for it to work since Windows automatically sees it. if it cannot be recognized there are only 3 possible things that are the problem 1. The cables are not properly plugged into it. 2. It has been disabled in the BIOS and 3. It is defective.

Computer does not recognize device

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
