Question about Dell Latitude Inspiron Modular Bay 24X CD Dell Part Number 5044D CDROM Drive
First try rebooting the system since it is possible the controller or power connection may have failed.
If the CD-ROM drive failed after rebooting, remove the system unit cover after unplugging the PC and disconnecting all peripherals. Locate the CDROM drive, disconnect the power connector. Check for power by connecting the spare connector to the drive.
If the drive works, the connector is faulty. If the drive does not work, use a multimeter to check for power to the drive. If the drive does not work and there is power from the power supply, the drive is bad and should be replaced. If the multimeter reveals no power at the connector, use the spare connector and realize that the power supply is slowly going bad.
