Most likely a hardware issue. First, check the CD cable to be certain it is not loose or disconnected from the CD or motherboard. If not resolved, go to Device Manager to see if the drive is present. If so, right-click and delete the entry. Restart your workstation and the drive should be "found". If not found, then the drive cable or CD drive is faulty. Hope this helps.

Can't find CD icon is missing from one computer


Windows Key-E will bring up windows explorer which should show your list of available drives.
If this doesn't show your CD drive then try removing CD from drive. Does the disc tray open? If so then reboot system without disc and try the above method to find cd-drive.
If this doesn't work you may need to involve more hands on trouble-shooting.
Thanks

My computer wont show the drive and i cant retreve any of my backups. It has worked fine untill now .


does it show up in the bios on boot?

if not your almost hosed... you need a new controller board for the drive or install the internal disks into a forensics drive kit. (i would take the drive to a recovery specialist. its cheaper than ebaying the parts needed). or just take the cover off and show the kids, display on the wall ect...

if it shows up in the Bios then try a bootable cd, (windows install disk will allow you to drop to DOS).
from dos explore the drives

cd c:

should bring you to c:

mkdir backup

will make a directory called backup

cd d:

should bring you to d:

copy *.* c:/backup

will copy all files in the current directory to the C: drive to the backup folder. path through and get the files you want.

I cannot download a family CD on my computer. there is no tool bar with file etc


Unlike a camera memory card, a regular data CD may not auto open/load into your computer. You need to insert the CD into the CD drive while the computer is running,. It should automatically open Windows Explorer and show the contents of your computer. The CD drive will be an item listed. double click on the drive (probably D:) to show it's contents. Then copy any files from the cd to your documents or photos folder.
