Re: Cd/DVD drive not showing up in "My Computer"
Can you open the drive? if you cant it might be a faulty power supply
Also try running 'add new hardware' from control panel. Check if its recognised in disk management as well, i had a computer which didnt recognize the drive till i checked in disk management. Control panel/administrative tools/computer management/disk management
check if the drive is there, and if it has the 'healthy' or 'no media' label.
