Question about Computers & Internet
Does the drive appear in the BIOS ? If not recognized there, Windows won't see it. Do you have more than one DC or DVD drive? If so make sure the jumpers are set cs on both or master on one and slave on the other. The jumpers are on the back by the power and flat cable connections.

Tips for a great answer:
Start, Run, and type regedit and press
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the
following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step
4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
