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.

You probably need a belt to be installed. I would just buy a Sony unit if they are still available. Sharp was not real high up on the quality list all the years I worked in Customer Service.

Can't find CD icon is missing from one computer

Windows Key-E will bring up windows explorer which should show your list of available drives.
If this doesn't show your CD drive then try removing CD from drive. Does the disc tray open? If so then reboot system without disc and try the above method to find cd-drive.
If this doesn't work you may need to involve more hands on trouble-shooting.

CD / DVD player not listed as device on Windows Explorer

Try physically removing the player and fire up the laptop. Power down the laptop, replace the player and power back up. If that doesn't help, see if BIOS recognizes it.
If that doesn't work, get back to me.
