How old is your optical drive now?
How often did you use that?

It is still under warranty?

if yes, contact your manufacturer to replace your optical drive.

try to check the connections between the optical drive to your motherboard.

if the system recognize the drive so i therefore conclude that your drive is identified and working properly.

this is the common problem with optical devices. I have 5 cd roms and burners. it only serves me about a year or two then. useless.

My computer is not showing the option of DVD option in my computer

Check the connectors on the drive after you have opened the case. If all of the cables are connected correctly and the drive is good then you should goto the contro9l panel and see if there are any driver problems. If a yellow exclamation point shows next to the DVD drive then you must install the correct drivers. To download the correct drivers Google the model number and goto the manufacturers site under support and download the correct driver and then install it. Reboot your system after installing driver and windows should automatically find it and complete the installation.

When burning cd, does not read there is a cd in drive, tried several brands of cd's, deleted burner and restarted, any suggestions

Hi, Does it show the Cd burner after pressing START BUTTON and then COMPUTER? If it is not shown, try reinstalling the Drivers that came with the machine. If no Cd with Drivers then visit the Website of the manufactures of the CD burner. Check there for the Driver download. If still no joy the Cd burner may need cleaning ( this is not always recommended, delicate parts etc..) or it may of failed. Prices for new Cd burner are very reasonable maybe worth buying a new 1, if the PC/Laptop is still in warranty take it back and complain.

it's a classic drive failure problem where the laser can no longer burn or read dvd's, and show rhr writer as a cdrw, but may still be able to read or write cd's only. You will have to replace the drive, they are quite inexpensive, and very easy to fit.
