Re: my laptop doesnt know it has a cd/dvd drive

Can you manually run the CD by opening "my computer" and doubleclicking the CD drive? If it doesnt even work that way your CD drive is probably bad and will need a replacement.

Hope this helps!

Head of to the Acer website.Put in your model and serial # of your laptop. Find and download the cd or dvd drivers and install them on your laptop.

My cd/dvd drive on my Fujitsu Siemens laptop doesnt work

Right click on my computer icon then click on property then ->hardware ->device manager

then check there is any cd/ dvd drive showing in list.
If you can see your cd /dvd driver then uninstall it.
then restart computer.
But if you cant seen then you need to refix your cd dvd rom.
For that pull your cd drive from laptop but make sure there is 1 lock system near rom just press that lock and pull drive then refix it.
