II have a Cd/Dvd burner built in on my laptop and I went to burn a cd and it said no device detected. It has always worked in the past. I sent it back to Acer for a fix and they said they did. I still had problems and had to reinstall the bios and vista. Now it is doing it again. It randomly registers in the bios. When the computer is on, I can eject cds/dvd and it runs. Just the computer does not register the drive or randomly looses it in the bios while the computer is running. If the computer sometimes gets carried or turned over it might register it. So I do not know if it is a software or hardware problem and if I have to take it to a repair shop. about an average cost to fix, please.

If you have not done so, under device manager, remove the dvd rom (cd-rom) from the hardware list, Use the CD install disk that come with your DVD-ROM, install the drivers and software, then reboot your pc and let it install the new hardware detected. This should get you going.
oh my frd...it happens bcoz u could hav burned u r cd in data files format...wch will not detected by the cd player...cd player detects only the mp3 formats...so nxt tym u burn a cd check whether the option wch u given s mp3 format for audio files...and main thing is that check whther u burned a CD or DVD...bcoz CD player will not detect DVD...a DVD player can detect CD whereas CD player cant detect DVD disc my frd!!!!
I had the same problem on my Sony Vaio and I found a free program called "CD Tray Pal" You just click on the desktop icon and it loads and windows recognizes your drive. Amazing, after a while, it fixed itself and I did not have to use it anymore! Hope this helps. http://www.e-systems.ro/ You should be able to find it on this site.
It could be that the burner has gone out in the drive, this is a common problem. Before you go and replace the drive, it could just be a simple driver glitch, try uninstalling the drivers for the CD drive from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the drive and reinstall the drivers. If this doesn't work then you can replace the drive.
Check the bios when the laptop first boots. There should be a message saying something like "Press F2 To Enter Setup"
See if your drive is detected and listed in the bios.
If not, power off, pop the drive out and reinsert it then try again.
You may have to turn the laptop over and remove one screw about 5" from the edge but near the drive. It will not be in any panel. If you can't see it then a quick read of your manual should show you how it comes out.
If it is detected in the bios, then boot Windows again and go into System then Device Properties (you can reach SYSTEM from control panel)
Check the list to make sure your drive is installed under Windows.
If that does not help, then post back and we can try a few other things.
