My dvd drive disappeared from computer/device manager. Drive opens, and spins disc, but isn't recognized by Windows 7.


Does BIOS still recognize the drive? Also, check to make sure the IDE / SATA cord is fully connected, the dirve will operate with power, but wont be recognized without the other cord. If the cords are connected and BIOS reads it then win7 should autodetect it. If its not, it may be the disc itself, try putting something you know for a fact works. If the problem persists, try adding the hardware through the device manager, or deleting all mention of it, then re-adding it through the device manager. This tricked worked for Xp machines, although Ive never had to try it on a Win7 machine, it should still work.

Can't find drivers for mitsumi floppy drive D3553FUE


floppy drives are installed on most newer operating systems. When installing a floppy drive, you do have to be certain the floppy driver is enable in the system BIOS. That is generally the problem when you cannot get a computer to recognize a floppy dirve.

My computer will not recognize my cd/dvd drive, there are no optical drives listed in device manager


In the optical drives or ATAPI drives section of Device Manager, try right clicking and choosing "scan for hardware changes." If the CD/DVD drive still doesn't show up, you might want to try opening the computer up and resetting the cables going to the drive (both the power and data cables).

The drive was working before, right?

Dropped my external harddrive


Here are some suggestions that might work in a knocked up drive: First,put your drive in a freezer for a day. Place the drive in a sealed bag and get as much air out or vacuum seal if need be. After freezing, quickly insert the drive into your computer. This seems to temporarily reset the heads in the hard drive to allow you to recover and copy some of your important files for a short period. Second, take it to a data recovery service center. They will retrieve the data for you but I would like to warn this will be a bit expensive.

Drive does not appear in "My Computer".


Let's see if Windows is still seeing the drive.

Click Start

Right click on My Computer

Left click on Manage

Left click on Disk Management

Take a look at the listed drives to see if the new one is there. If so the drive may need to be formatted correctly.

Let me know what you find.
