Hi,

Eject the Drive form your laptop, spray the inside with canned air, use a flashlight to see if the holes are occupied by something. Look at the pins for the drive at the back and see if they are all straight. If you have a bent pin tell me before you try to straighten it first, these break off really easy and there is a trick to straightening them. put your Floppy drive in the compartment if you have one and see if that device is recognized in Windows.

Let me know your results.

Regards,
Worldvet

> it does not appear in "My Computer"

Does it appear in "Device Manager" with a "yellow-triangle" or "red-X" superimposed on its icon?

Since the tray opens/closes, it is getting electrical power.

Do you hear the drive spinning a disk, when you close the tray?

Cd/dvd drive won't stay shut


I have the dv9000z. If I do NOT push the DVD drive tray all the way in until it CLICKS shut, then it OPENS again after 1-2 seconds. This is normal. I have found that most times when I close the DVD tray drive, I am not pushing it in far enough, because the top of the DVD tray is rubbing against the laptop's case. If I just press down VERY SLIGHTLY and push the DVD tray in, the tray will fully close and CLICK shut. This works for me. Good luck.
