My toshiba satellite laptop does not recognize the cd-dvd player

\015 The problem began with the cd-dvd driver failing to allow the player to start. I tried to delete the driver and install a new one, but now the computer does not list the cd-dvd player as a hardware device.\015

Answers :

Open up the Device Manager, right-click on the computer name and select Scan for hardware changes in the context menu. The system will attempt to re-detect all of your hardware. It should add the optical drive during this process (which will take several minutes). If it doesn't, your drive may be defective.

I just bought a 17' Toshiba L350 laptop, but the DVD Player won't work. It says ''The specified drive can not be located''. And it's not like the DVD player is not an external driver. It's a push-the-button and the tray pops out kind of thing. Also, we bought the computer brand new, but it did not come with any disks. Can anyone help? Thank you.
