What is that? laptop or desktop, because laptop isn't easy to open and but in desktop you can change dvd drive.well, if you drive is not showing anything, that means either is disable or is not connected properly? have you seen that your drive's property?just right click away to check and any lighting indicated process, the LED light will start blinking if the computer is communicating with your drive. good luck,

Hi,
what you are experiencing right now is a CD/DVD filter issue. usually caused by third party softwares trying to change the settings of your CD drive in the registry.
heres what you need to do: -click on the start button and click on run and then type in regedit. (you can also type it in the start search box). -once you have the registry editor open, click on the arrow beside HKEY LOCAL MACHINE -then click on the arrow beside SYSTEM -click on the arrow beside CURRENT CONTROL SET -click on the arrow beside CONTROL -click on the arrow beside CLASS -now on all the items under class, look for 4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318 -on the other half of the page you would see a description that will say it is for the CD/DVD drive. -check if you can see items that says upper or lower filters -if you have them, delete both of them. (right click on the item and select delete.) make sure there are no filters before you exit out of the registry editor. -restart your computer and it should work fine now.
hope this helps.

Your CD/DVD drive may be fine, but some software is faulty. The repair is a very similar process for all Windows versions, which involves editing the registry, so use caution. Here's a my search results:

CD/DVD drive doesn't work


try removing the drive from the laptop, then go into the device menu and delete the drive. Restart. Shutdown again and insert the drive, restart - it should show a "new device" recognized. If it doesn't, the drive may just have failed. I've had it happen to a dell drive - it just doesn't see the drive at all.

Drive non responsive


Hi, it sounds like a bad CD/DVD. The DVD drive has a small hole in the front that you can use a small paper clip or tool that has a small tip and insert it into the hole and it will eject the DVD drive drawer then you can try another DVD or CD. Make sure the DVD or CD is clean and there is no scratches on it. You can clean the DVD or CD with a soft clean cloth and even buff out small scratches. Hope that helped.

AOpen DUW1608/ARR - DVD Problem


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.
