Dell Inspiron 1501 CD-Rom wont play.I can hear it start to spin.Can play stored music.Have no CD Rom or filters showing under "Device manager".

If the CD-ROM drive is not being detected under the device manager, chances are that either the power/data cable is loose or the drive is dying. To check the cables, turn off the power, unplug the power cord, open the case and examine the two plugs behind the drive. Touch yourself to something metal first to discharge static electricity.
If it turns out the drive is dead, then luckily drives are usually very cheap to replace. Somewhere in the line of $15 usually.
