Please follow these steps

Check the power to the CD-ROM drive first. See if the activity LED works. Try to open the tray. If the tray doesn't open the drive does not have power; check the plug connection to the drive inside the case. If it doesn't work, try another one. If you can't get power to the drive, it is most likely dead and needs to be repaired or replaced

  • If you have another system that you can try the drive in, it is a good idea to connect it to the other PC and see if it will be detected there. Bear in mind that moving the drive to a new PC can introduce other variables that might confuse the issue, but I have seen this be a very effective way to isolate the trouble to either the CD-ROM drive or the PC it is installed into. Similarly, if you try another identical (or even just similar) CD-ROM in place of the one not working, that can tell you if the problem is the drive or the drive interface.

    How i find download for cd-room benq model 656a-56x max

    Dear Sir,
    Please post questions in detail to help us to serve you better. The answer which I'll be providing you is based on assumption on the little data you have provided.
    I think you need drivers for your CD ROM drive. If you are using windows XP then you don't need any driver becasue it is already there is XP but if you are using an older version, you can get the drivers from BENQ site. By the way are you still using CD ROM drives when DVD writers are available dirt cheap. Consider this as suggestion.
    Please rate me appropriately if you are satisfied with my answer,in case, if you want any clarification please get back to me.
