My dvd/cd driver has disappeared


Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

CD/DVD Drive now disappeared


Sorry to say that your cd/dvd drive is DEAD

You need a replacement

You have done all you could to see if the registry is corrupted and drivers are installed which are the basic things the drive needs to run

Since you have said that you did these things the last resort is to now declare it dead and replace the drive.

CD Burner doesnt see a Disc is in already


failure my friend. try to restart your computer, this way, after restarting, your drive will recognize that a cd is in.

if it still doesnt recognize that a cd is in, try updating the firmware of your drive and clean the lenms of your cdrom too.
