Well evidently you have a software problem, otherwise your dvd unit is broken, but lets hope not and try this:

you surely have the recovery CD or DVD that comes with your laptop and if you are clueless at computers you have to play attention on the following:

first is to ensure your unit is working and tha can be done by booting from any bootable CD. Just enter the bios if necessary, set the machine to boot first from cd and next from hd... then start with any bootable disc that you know is working. Windows installing disc can be, laptop recovery can be too... if it works now you know the problem is on the operative system and you need to focus on that.

try going to systems properties, then go to the exclametory sign and go properties with right button, navigate that options and if you are shown, ensure to enable DMA access mode. If you cant do this, just uninstall that device by clicking on the right button and selecting unninstal... and then do the same with any devices related to cds and ide devices... finally reboot your system and let windows put all that bach in place.

If this doesnt help you you might need to reinstall OS, so either backup your files and restart using the cd that comes with your computer or get back with more precise information, because yours is a very generic problem and many things can cause that.

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

My hp laptops dvd rom is not shown and is not detecting any dvd

Have you used Device Manager and done a search for new hardware? If that has not helped, then you should try to open the laptop to check whether the wires are fully connected, if these are internal.

It is possible that the wires became disconnected, and need to be reconnected to work again.

Try that.

Display Dvd Rom

Hello my friend, please try to reboot your computer then goto CMOS and check if the DVD Rom that you have is detected by your system. If it does not detect then you can manually detect a device using CMOS function. Also try to check if the connectivity of your DVD Rom is not diabled otherwise enable it to detect your device. If all the above steps you followed then the result is still the same then please find a computer technician in your place then let him open and fix the problem.

If you need more assistance my friend please reply to this post.

Acer aspire can't find the dvd to play cd's

In the device manager, select the DVD ROM and UNINSTALL / REMOVE the device.  Restart Windows . . . did this work?  If not, boot into your CMOS and see if the drive is being detected by the motherboard... if yes, look further and make sure the settings for the drive are correct. Make sure that all IDE interfaces are enabled in the CMOS settings (both)
