Asus k55a-rbr6 Cd Drive not recognized in Devices and Printers, will not run any CD.

The Asus K55A-RBR6 optical drive uses the Windows built-in driver. The drive may have failed or it could have a power or cable issue. To check for a power issue, try ejecting the optical drive by pushing the disc tray into the computer. If the drive tray ejects and retracts, it has power.

First, go to the Device Manager and check if there are any driver issues identified by Windows. (Click Start > Control Panel (in the right hand column. Click on either System and Security > System or Hardware and Devices and then select the Device Manager. Expand the section for DVD/CD-ROM drives and look for a yellow triangle with an exclamation point or a red triangle with an x. Try to uninstall the driver and then reboot the machine. Windows will try to restore the driver. (You should alsocheck Windows Update for any optional drivers. Start > Control Panel > System > Windows Update.)

Check that you have installed the latest available BIOS upgrade (407), from .

The laptop uses a SATA slimline internal optical drive. The drive needs a power connector from the internal power supply and a SATA cable connected to the motherboard. You can access these if you disassemble the laptop. You may want to try just replacing the drive (~$25 at many vendors). If the second drive doesn't work, then try replacing the SATA cable and make sure it's well seated at the motherboard and the optical drive. There aren't extra power cables in most laptops but you should check for damage. Alternatively, get an external USB optical drive to replace the internal drive.

I hope this helps.

Try changing the data and/or power cable using with the optical drive. If after that the bios don't see your optical drive then also try reseting your bios, after those 2 checks if the optical drive remains undetected is fried, need to be replaced.

My laptop dell d610 dont have a cd/dvd+RW it cannot burn cd or dvd, i want to download cd/dvd+Rw to enable to burn

It sounds like the problem is your hardware, the current optical drive you have installed cannot burn disks, not matter what software you download you will not be able to do this without the correct hardware. You will need to buy a new drive that is Read/Write capable from a local computer store.

When i put some dvd disk in the drive it does not read but the light in the front just blinks constantly

Is your DVD-writer not recognizing any disk? If it so, the most probable case is that your DVD-writer's Optical Lens has been corrupted. Go for another new DVD-writer or try repairing your DVD-writer.

Dvd won't open program

Does your dvd drive opens other dvd's if it does, that means your dvd has gone bad but if your dvd drive fails to play any dvd's than it's a problem with your dvd drive.

Best way to test it would be to insert a new empty dvd and see if your dvd drive opens it.

Dell Dimension 8400 Bottom DVD Drive will not open

Well in most PC related optical drives, there is a very small opening on the front of the drive, who gives access to the opening mecanism. You can use one end of a small paperclip to reach it. (In case you have a CD in there you want) Now about it working the usual way, there isnt much your can do, maybe somthing related to it's power, but again, if somthing is broken... unless it's still in waranty Good luck!
