    • Stage 1
      Please do all the below even if you have done some before as it is often the total
      process which solves the issue.

      Try this – Control Panel – Device Manager – CD/DVD – double click the device – Driver’s Tab –
      click Update Drivers (this will likely do nothing) – then RIGHT CLICK the drive – UNINSTALL –
      REBOOT this will refresh the default driver stack. Even if drive is not shown continue

      Then work your way through these – remember the drive could be bad, could have a loose
      cable or slight corrosion on the contacts (usually for a laptop) and other issues.

      Your CD drive or DVD drive is missing or is not recognized by Windows or other programs – a Mr Fixit

      Your CD drive or DVD drive is missing or is not recognized by Windows or other programs –
      a Mr Fixit

      The CD drive or the DVD drive does not work as expected on a computer that you upgraded
      to Windows Vista

      When you insert a CD or a DVD, Windows Vista may not recognize the disc

      Your CD or DVD drive cannot read or write media – A Mr Fixit

      CD/DVD drive does not appear in Windows Vista, or you receive this error during Windows
      Vista setup after booting from the DVD (AHCI)

      CD-R drive or CD-RW drive is not recognized as a recordable device

      Hardware devices not detected or not working – A Mr Fixit

      Another possibility is that the cables are loose. Remove ALL power, then check cables in both
      ends. Remove and replace, do not just snug. For laptops you can often clean the power and
      data contacts with a pencil eraser.

      Some DVD drives do not use the Windows default drivers so check with the System maker and
      device maker to see if there is firmware or drivers for your drive if needed.

      Stage 2
      You could have drive issues as the CD/DVD is actually 4 drives in 1 case ( CD & DVD
      burn and CD and DVD read). So it is not unusual for 1 or 2 parts to not function while the others
      do so properly.

      Did you complete the troubleshooter for the drive that still does not work? There are some
      registry entries that the troubleshooter does not fix and those “might” be the cause.

      Check with your System Maker and Device maker for both possible firmware updates and
      the correct Registry entries for your drive.

      These are the keys I think are the ones in question – for the CD/DVD drive sub-keys of course
      as there will other sub-keys in these keys. Be sure to ask for specific keys involved as well as
      the settings.
