Question about HP Pavilion A610n (PC106A#ABA) PC Desktop
The CD player is not available... it does not show up in the list of drives. The door will not open either, there is a CD in it from last usage, but it is not recognized by the system anymore. The DVD player, however works just fine. Please help. Thank you
You have to open the case. Check and see if all of the cables leading from the motherboard to the drive are fully connected, also make sure that the power cable is pulged into the drive, if it is, check to see if the plug is auctually getting power. If it is not getting power, try a different plug, or if none work, it could be that the drive has burned out, and you will need to replace it.

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.
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
