Hi,
Is this a Combi-Drive. they read and write CDs but only read DVDs.
Try it on another IDE connector, or change the jumper setting on the back to Master Or Slave.
If you are using Nero or similar, view the drives capabilities, and the formats of read/write that the device supports.

Asus k55a-rbr6 Cd Drive not recognized in Devices and Printers, will not run any CD.


The Asus K55A-RBR6 optical drive uses the Windows built-in driver. The drive may have failed or it could have a power or cable issue. To check for a power issue, try ejecting the optical drive by pushing the disc tray into the computer. If the drive tray ejects and retracts, it has power.

First, go to the Device Manager and check if there are any driver issues identified by Windows. (Click Start > Control Panel (in the right hand column. Click on either System and Security > System or Hardware and Devices and then select the Device Manager. Expand the section for DVD/CD-ROM drives and look for a yellow triangle with an exclamation point or a red triangle with an x. Try to uninstall the driver and then reboot the machine. Windows will try to restore the driver. (You should alsocheck Windows Update for any optional drivers. Start > Control Panel > System > Windows Update.)

Check that you have installed the latest available BIOS upgrade (407), from http://www.asus.com/Notebooks_Ultrabooks/K55A/#support .

The laptop uses a SATA slimline internal optical drive. The drive needs a power connector from the internal power supply and a SATA cable connected to the motherboard. You can access these if you disassemble the laptop. You may want to try just replacing the drive (~$25 at many vendors). If the second drive doesn't work, then try replacing the SATA cable and make sure it's well seated at the motherboard and the optical drive. There aren't extra power cables in most laptops but you should check for damage. Alternatively, get an external USB optical drive to replace the internal drive.

I hope this helps.

I recently experienced the same problem. The cause is the drive itself is starting to fail. It will continue to degrade until it stops functioning completely.
The only thing you can do is replace it.

Can not find the optical pick-ups number


Since the entire drive can be purchased for around $70, it is unlikely that the optics are available or for that matter less than that cost. You will find it less money to replace the drive. The optics are not available as separate components.

External USB DVD-RW


Hi Nick,
this may be a driver conflict issue, either with your factory fitted drive.
try going into system/device manager and see if its in there, click remove or uninstall, reboot and plug the drive in again, go through the add new hardware wizard if need be.
the other suggestion, is to remove all USB devices from The device manager, reboot and the system will re-install the USB port drivers.

Problem installing nec 6650 drive


Assuming the connection to the laptop has been physically made correctly and that your previous optical drive had the same problem. The motherboard of the laptop may be faulty in the way that the IDE channel may not be recognising any devices. Put your old drive back in to make sure it isn't a fault with the motherboard. It may be that it's a rare compatibility problem, or the interface of the NEC 6650 is different to that of your current optical drive. Failing all this. Reset your bios to the defaults.
