Try using the manual eject that is as small as a pinhole just below or beside the CD drive. Once you find out that you can manually eject you may be able to insert a cleaning cd to clean the device.

If that doesn't work check device manager to see if it has the proper driver or if it's recognized that it's installed in the system.

No, the southbridge simply is no longer working properly - the PATA controller to which the optical drives are connected has failed. The motherboard is dead, you must replace it.

The cd dvd drive spins when any disc (cd or dvd) is put in the drive, but it will not play. It won't show up in itunes, WMP, or even in the computer drive section.


If the CD unit itself appears in My computer but it's always empty (no disk in it) then the lens from the optical hear is covered in dust - clean it with a q-tip.
If not even the unit appears in My Computer then the unit's control processor is dead and you will have to replace it - a simple job but one that requires a basic experience, if you don't have it you will have to take it to a repair shop.

CD/DVD Drive now disappeared


Sorry to say that your cd/dvd drive is DEAD

You need a replacement

You have done all you could to see if the registry is corrupted and drivers are installed which are the basic things the drive needs to run

Since you have said that you did these things the last resort is to now declare it dead and replace the drive.

My cd drive shows empty even with disc inserted


If the disks you insert DO work on some other computer,
then it's time to spend $40 and buy a new CD/DVD-writer,
to replace the "dead" unit.

The "working properly" part is ONLY an indication that the hardware has been detected, and the correct software device-drivers have been loaded; it makes no guarantee that the unit will work.
Compare it to having a car -- it looks like a car, but if won't start, it still is a car, although it cannot be used as a car.
