I have a compaq presario v6000 and my cd/dvd drive does not show or read cds, but it does spin when i put a cd in to it, also it does not show in device manager

your drivers may have been corrupted or you might have a virus run your antivrus program
you might have to physically unplug the leads for this dvd-drive then plug them back in this should activate the found new hardware wizard or
you might have to uninstall then reinstall your DVD/CD or uninstall the driver then reinstall for this device
click start control panel admistrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd dvd rom drives right click you will see options to update driver,roll back driver,or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver or uninstall then reinstall
make sure that the cd-dvd burner is getting enough power test all leads that are attached to the dvd burner including electical extensions and make sure they have a secure connection or just replace them there might be bad/faulty or

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders







This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

hope this helps

Does a Super Multi 8X DVD±R/RW with Double Layer Support, burns and creates audio CD's as well ??

if you get the nero info tool it should tell you what your drive supports

2nd download on that page - install that and run it and it will tell you what your drive supports assuming you have that drive selected from the drop down menu.

Internal CD ROM will Not Open

Unless you can do electronic repair yourself and have the schematics for the drive it will be far cheaper and easier for you to simply replace it. Any DVD drive for computers will fit in there. I would buy a new one rather than used so you make sure and get the software with it. Replacing the drive is a 30 minute job at most.

Laptop doesn't see my dvd/cd drive

Most probably the drive is broken and needs to B replaced if you have done all that and it's still not going... Occam's Razor.. The lasers or quadrant detectors get burn out all too frequently I have found.
