My Cd/DVD burner has disappeared I have tried deleting the upper and lower filters and it still doesn't show up the tray opens the light comes on but it's not usable or found anywhere I have an HP...


Try this:

I have to ask, after deleting the upper & lower filters did you reboot the PC?

If so try this:
Go to:
Start>(right click on Computer)left click on Manage.
Left click on Device Manager
Locate your DVD/CD-Rom drives.
Right Click on the DVD/CD Rom-drive> uninstall Now reboot the PC.

If the drive does not come back in Computer> devices with removeable storage go back to Device Manager (Start>right click computer>Device Manager) to see if you can see DVD/CD Rom-drive.If you dont see the drive in this location then it sounds as if your DVD/CDRom-drive is no longer working and you will have to replace it.

Good luck!

Acer aspire 3610 dvd drive does not work


Check it is "seen" in the bios first, a failed device will often disappear from the bios
Then, in My Computer, see if you can see the DVD Icon
Now If you can see it, go to Control panel, device manager and see if there is a yellow exclaimation mark next to the device, indicating a problem. If there is, the device has possibly failed, but you can try to remove the retaining screw that holds it into the laptop remove the DVD and re-insert it. This works most times IF the device still has life left in it

IF you cannot see the DVD in My Computer, repost and I'll talk you through the next stage, which involves resetting the filters in the registry

Hp pavilion cd/dvd drive disappeared, not showing in device manager, no audio device installed over speaker icon


What you want to do is, first, make sure that the cables are connected to the cd/dvd player. Then, when you are in the device manager, right click on your computer name all the way on the top above all the devices, and click on scan for hardware changes.. If nothing comes up, restart computer and try this step again.

My dvd driver is playing hide & seek with me.one minute it there,then it just disappear.what can i do to get it back


Does it also disappears in your Device manager? If it also disappears in device manager this could be a driver issue or loose dvd drive. Try to update the driver for the DVD player or try to unseat and reseat the DVD player on the laptop.

Hello, i use an acer laptop,i have the philips DVD + RW drive in the laptop.but now for the past few days it has just disappeared,it does not show in my computer but it is still there in computer mana


The device may be disabled or is in conflect with something else. I would recommend to have the drivers uninstalled and reinstalled other wise reformat your hard drive. FFR (Full Format Restoration) don't forget to back up.

DVD DRIVE DISAPPEARS


does it just disappear on its own? Or is it possible that its disappearing after you plug in other USB devices and the driver letter gets nabbed? Or if you're in a office with network drives they could be taking the driver letter.

VISTA 64-BIT and Sony DRU-810a DVD RW


An exclamation point means that there is a problem with the device. Could be as simple as a corrupted driver. Try unistalling the drive from Control Panel>Add/Remove Harware. Reboot; then reinstall drive. Hope this helps.
