    Did you look under the bed? :)



    Seriously:



    Check the following:



    1) Make sure power cable is connected

    2) make sure data cable is connected

    3) from device manage see if there are any errors...do a find hardware refresh

    4) Check your BIOS to see if it shows there



    If you checked all of the above...then it is possible the CDROM is damaged and you will need to replace it.



    Search the internet you can pick them up for cheap money...even under 20 bucks.



    Good Luck my friend.

I installed a secondary CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drive below the first one. The first started working after installing the second. Hope this helps somehow.

Hello, you are so funny SeekPCRepair, when my neighbours went missing she thought it was personal (she has had some wicked pc issues last year!!!) Piap,has the CD rom icon dissapeared off the my computer window? This can mean evil gnomes have stolen it ( a fellow once said) but actually, it is something that sometimes just happens. It can be there one minute and gone the next.
You do need to go through the steps above as SeekPCRepair has said, but if nothing above works, and no entries at all appear for your drive under device manager ( found by clicking my computer, then view system info, then hardware, then device manager) and you have opened up your pc, and checked if the power ribbons (cables) are secure, and then looked for it again, it is either defective or a software issue. If all else fails, you can try editing the registry, as it may be corrupt driver files but first you need to try uninstalling the drive and reinstalling it if you can find the driver deatils. If this does not work, try downloading new driver from manufactures website. Install with this and see if it works. Post back if none of this works above and i will tell you how to step by step edit the registry to repair corrupt files.

I purchased a CD-Rom advertised on Amazon as compatible with Asuseeepc and I wanted it for use with the DVD support disc. It works fine with cds but does not recognize dvds when inserted. I have been


A CD-Rom will only recognize CD's. It must be a DVD-ROM to recognize DVD's. DVD-ROM will recognize CD's ,but not the other way around. No drivers needed for thes, they are plug and play.

Software drivers needed


You'll be glad to know you do not need drivers to install a cd or dvd drive, Windows has the controllers built in the software. Just fit it in your desktop and Windows will automatically install it for you. Please rate solution.
