Question about Computers & Internet
It sounds like the technician forgot to reconnect the data cable or power supply to the cd drive. That's one possibility, anyway.
Take a look in the device manager or the bios setup and see if that drive is being detected. If not, you could open the side of a desktop and, after grounding yourself out against the metal of the case, see if the cd drive power cable and data cable are connected correctly. Perhaps remove and reinsert it. Check both ends of the data cable. If it's a laptop, you could take a look at the support site for your system and see if they have a service manual available for download that will walk you though the steps.
Or take it back where they "fixed" it. They should be able to patch it up pretty quickly while you wait...
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
