If reseating the drive doesn't solve the problem and the drive is seen in the system setup (F2 at boot) then this article should resolve the problem.

It could be a registry issue due to software installation conflicts. You may go to www.digitalsupporttech.com to have it checked and see if your CD-ROM drive problem falls into this scenario.

I had a similar problem occur a while back. If you haven't installed anything big, you can do a system restore (under Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore) to a point where you know that the drive worked.
If the drive is not appearing at all, I can tell you that the problem is not a driver for the particular type of optical drive.

Please check something for me as I may have a solution.

Click on Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> System

Then at the top of the system box Click on the Hardware tab. Then open the Device Manager.

Under DVD/CD Drives See if your cd-rom shows up. If it does, does it have a yellow exclamation point through it? If it does double click on it and it should gave you an error message. Please post back that error message as I know some quick fixes for most of the error messages.

Dell computer cd rom drive disappeared


First, try a cold start, shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in, reboot. Any change? Yes/No? If no, do a system restore to a date before this issue, or re-install the CD rom driver.

The d drive has disappeared from my laptop. how


You have to create a Partition and make a new "logical drive" . Right click my computer then select manage. Select Disk Management and then click and right click on your C drive and select create new drive. DONT CLICK FORMAT or u will erase your whole hardrive. But usually your D drive is your cd-rom or dvd drive so i dont really understand that

MY CD ROM DOES NOT PLAY ANY VIDEO OR AUDIO FILE


Most likely this is a failed CD drive or failed CD reader board in the drive. You can try cleaning the lens, and uninstalling the drivers for the drive from the device manager, but most liky you will have to replace the drive. When you unistall the drivers, restart the machine. it will find the CD drive and reinstall the drivers automatically. If a lens cleaning kit, or reinstalling the drivers do not work, then I'm afraid the drive will need replaced.

CD / DVD player not listed as device on Windows Explorer


Try physically removing the player and fire up the laptop. Power down the laptop, replace the player and power back up. If that doesn't help, see if BIOS recognizes it.
If that doesn't work, get back to me.
