Hello there:
Your drive may not necessarly be bad , what i would do is open the case and switch the ribbon from the harddrive and place it on the cd rom and then place the one that was on the cd rom and put it on the harddrive and boot the computer into the bios and see if the cd rom is now showing up.,
If so good which may mean that the ribbon cable that was originally attached to the cd rom may not be good .
But if still nothing than you can put every thing back the way it was and if the ribbon cable that was attached to the cd rom originally has a extra end to hook up to the cd rom try to use it and see what happnes if still nothing than yes replace the drive they usually run about 30 to 60 dollars ok?
best regards michael

Try cleaning it using a CD cleaning kit... If that fails to work - replace the drive. Repairing will cost as much as a new drive!

Cd/dvd rom is not recognized on system. No drive letter or in device manager


If the drive is showing an error (or is missing) in device manager, do the following:

Start Registry Editor (Start, Run and type in regedit then click O.K)
Locate the UpperFilters value under the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.
Locate the LowerFilters value under the same key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.
Quit Registry Editor.
