The dvd drive not work model satellite L355-s7902


Check in device manager to see if the computer can detect it or if it shows a yellow ! or ? To get to device manager
  • Right Click on Computer and click Properties
  • Select Device Manager on the left, or in Win Xp click hardware tab and then device manager
If it doesn't show up at all I would say the drive is bad and needs to be replaced. Type your exact model number into ebay plus dvd drive and you should be able to find one cheap.
Let me know what you find out and if you need help replacing the drive, just comment back and I will walk you through it. Usually it will just be held on with one screen located on the back close to the DVD drive door but about 3-4" toward the middle.

My dvd player used to work now it doesn't even show one is in the computer what doi Do?


Hi Maverick,

Can you get to device manager to see if your drive is installed and recognized by the system.
In windows 7/vista click start and type in 'device manager' in XP click start -> right cick on My computer and select properties and navigate to the device manger tab.

There will be a list of hardware installed in the list and you should find your drive under DVD/CD ROM drives. If there is a yellow exclamation mark - you need to update the drivers using the CD that came with the drive.

If the drive is not showing up in device manager you need to take your comp to a service center as there may be a fault with the controller.

My computer can't find my dvd drive -- I can open and close the drive, insert a disk, but it does not show up on windows explorer (I'm using windows 7)


You should check if it shows up in Device Manager (right click My Computer, Properties and select Device Manager). If it does, then it's a drivers issue and you should try to reinstall the DVD Drive.
If it doesn't show up, then it's a cable connection issue. Maybe the SATA or IDE cable got loose.

DVD wont recognise disc


If your DVD drive don't show up in device manager and if there's no yellow exclamation mark in device manager, try to check IDE or SATA cable connection from your DVD drive to the motherboard. Also check the cable itself (are the wires inside broken?)

Please try to download the codecs and also try with the un-installing the DVD drive from the device manager.

Locate " Download [ K-Lite Codec Pack 5.6.1 FULL ] " from the list and click on it to start downloading the codecs. Once the download is complete, please double click on the downloaded file to install.

To uninstall and re-install the CD/DVD drive, please follow the below steps :

This will open the device manager window.

This will open the device manager window.

You will see a list of devices in the device manager window.

Click on + sign beside the CD/DVD ROM listed there. This will open the name of the device listed there. Right click on the device name listed there and click uninstall from the dropdown list.

This will disappear the device name from there.

To re-install the CD/DVD ROM drive :

Click on Action tab from the top of device manager window. Click Scsn for hardware changes from there.

This will re-install the CD/DVD drive in the device manager.

If the device is showing then try this.
Uninstall the driver and delete the device from the Device Manager.
Shut the computer down completely.
