It doesn't shows up because it's defective - you will have to replace it. You can buy a similar one for less than $45 at every IT shop.

My dvd/cd-rom is not able to play a dvd or cd of anytype


Restart your PC and go into your BIOS and disable the CD/DVD-R, this way it doesn't detect your CD/DVD-R it when you boot to Windows. Once you're in Windows, do a re-start again and go back into your BIOS and enable the CD/DVD-R.

Gigabyte G41MT-S2P can't boot on cd/dvd rom (installing win7)


If both the HDD and the CD/DVD drive contain bootable devices, the BIOS will usually ask just before starting the HDD boot, while still on the black screen, "Press any key to boot from CD". If you don't watch for this (it's usually at the very bottom or top of the screen), then the system will boot to the HDD.

Dvd writer doesnot showing in bios


Theres' a couple things you need to double check. If you also have a CD-ROM drive connected to the same data cable as the DVD-ROM writer check the jumper on the back side of both. One should be pinned with a two pin jumper and set as a master and the second should be set as the slave. The back side of each ROM drive is marked M for Master, S for Slave & C for cable select. (Cable Select not suggested).
Double check the data cable. Remove and re-seat at the motherboard and at the ROM drives Parallel ATA data cable. Also check the power cable. Remove and re-seat. If everything is connected and the two pin jumper correctly and snug you should see the DVD listed in the BIOS.
Performed a restart and check your BIOS.

Cheers'

My Lifebook C2340 won't recognize it's own DVD-ROM. When I set the CD in the BIOS, it goes back to "None". It doesn't show up in My Computer. I've cleaned the contacts and tried another DVD. Still won't...


Does it show the device in the BIOS? If not then there could be a problem with the motherboard hardware. If it is not showing up in the BIOS then I would first verify that the power connector for the drive has voltage. Also verify that the slave/master jumpers are correct if the drive has any. You could also try downloading the BIOS update from Fujitsu and see if after updating the BIOS it brings the cd-rom drive detection back. If the BIOS is seeing the drive but Windows is not then the problem could be with the Windows drivers or installation. You could try going into the control panel for windows and use the "detect new hardware function" and see if Windows detects the drive.

Vostro 1510. CD/DVD-R doesn't show up in the BIOS or 'My Computer' Is this a bad drive or can it be fixed?


If it is a normal IDE type of CD/rom drive it may not show in your BIOS. It may just need to reinstall the driver once up in W**dows.
