Question about HP DVD DRIVE DVD Drive
Do it only if u r a professional..
i gotta know: is ur drive pata/sata and the device make n model..
assuming that ur drive is pata, n u r a professional n aware of bios/cmos setup utility handling..!!
open up ur system cabinet and see if all the data cables n jumper settings at the back of the drives (master/slave selection)..itz most important..!!
however, at the bootup (0.29sec) start pressing briskly the key to enter cmos utility or bios setup (eg. F1/F2/F10/Del as applicable)..glance in the standard settings if r detected individually..change the 'Mode' if m/b is hybrid type(both SATA+PATA) : Native/Compatible/Enhanced (as applicable)..
see if ur device needs any additional driver or not, if so try downloading..
also try checking itz data cable for loose or faulty..
above all explanation is applicable only if itz not being detected by the m/b or system..(not for reading or writing problem)..
contact ur system admin/vendor....

This information is excellent but if you get to the point where you can't find the upper and lower filters and you go to your BIOS and that don't help and yet your DVD/CD ROM still physically works but the computer doesn't want to acknowledge it then try this it is FM......Make sure you have a DVD ready..... goto your Control Panel....System.....Device Manager.....place Your DVD in the Driver then Right Click on... Disk Drives....Click.... Scan For Hardware Changes...........It Worked for me when none of these things worked like I said FM....
