Question about Computers & Internet
Go to device manager, by clicking on start, right click on my computer and go to manage and see if it is detected in device manager, if it is, it may just need a new driver. Look for any Yellow ! or ?
If it is not then scan for newly added devices. If it still is not detected and in a laptop, WHILE POWERED DOWN, press gently on the DVD drive door like you are pressing it to be closed. if it has come unseated this may help. If on a desktop this wont help and you will need to verisfy that the cables have not come undone, rare but can happen especially with travel. If neither works, and in a desktop you can power off and put in a different drive. if this works you know your last drive has failed and that you can now be the proud owner of a new drive! If in a laptop a bit harder a not may people have a spare DVD drive that will fit yours just lying around. Try placing a different disk in the drive say a cd and see i it is still not finding it.
