Question about Computers & Internet
Just to let you know, you posted a question about your computer in the "barcode scanners" section.
I would start by removing all power to the computer, and opening the case to check the connections going to the back of the CD drive. Unplug and re-plug everything to ensure proper connectivity. If the computer still doesn't see it after this, explore the possibility of a virus/malware or a program causing conflicting interactions with Windows' ability to see the drive. Run scans from good (and free!) anti-virus/anti-malware programs like Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes, then reboot. If there are still problems after this, then read this article and see if it helps. http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-hardware/dvd-drive-doesnt-show-up-anymore/d44cf66d-7752-486f-889d-197fa0de4076. If it still doesn't work, then your dvd drive has most likely died. Not to fear though, these drives are cheap. $15-$20 for a desktop one and around ~$30 or so for a laptop drive.
