Probably both will play a cd but sure that one will only record a DVD -/+ or a CD and the DVD recorder will play DVD's. If the CD player is a DVD player it will play DVD's and CD's but not record.

Compaq cq71 320sa disc drive drivers

Go into my computer to make sure it is there, if okay check device manager that it is listed and enabled, if everything checks! open front bay, if it won't open on it's own get a pin and insert it in the small hole in the front of the tray until you hear a click, pop open and pull all the way out. Buy a can of compressed air and give it a good clean out, might work.

Cd player doesn't work

If you check it as the system is loading by inserting a system disc in the player, if it tries to load the system then there is a problem with the driver loading.
If the drive is shown in My Computer, (assuming you run Windows of some sort) then check the driver. If the driver is loaded OK, change the drive. They are so cheap to buy, it's not worth trying to fix it.
