Acer aspire can't find the dvd to play cd's

\015 Acer aspire 5735z laptop with vista on it.. when you click on my computer it does not show the dvd and wont' run anything... when you put a cd in a light does go on and sound like its running. in the device manager it kinda shows a dvd/ cdrom thing and says drivers are working... how does one get the computer to detect it and make my cd's work... HELP...\015\012\015\012I have the exactly the same problem. I tried a dvd-rom cleaner but that was a stupid idea because the computer can't detect that either!\015\012\015\012new driver was put in but it not working\015

Answers :

Most likely the drive is dead, they die from time to time, sometimes they can last years and sometimes but less frequently they just go belly up one day and its very typical for the Cmos and computer to recnognize there is a device there, but Windows cannot access it at all. Try purchasing an external USB or Firewire if your PC has a port for it - and you can then access your CD/s that way. Otherwise, you can purchase a new drive and have it installed. Locating the drive replacement may require some research and time depending on the notebook's specific model number. Also check to see if your PC is still under warranty by any chance, that drive would be covered in most cases.
