Dell Inspiron B130 DVD RW problems

\015 I have a dell and it has a TS-632 Cd drive. The drive powers up and everything but Its not displayed on the My computer folder nor does it do anything. The computer does not detect it when I plug it in. What do I do?\015

Answers :

First thing you need to check is whether the issue happens only if you\015\012are logged in to Windows or not. For you to check if it also happens\015\012outside of Windows, insert the Windows Operating System disk (XP or\015\012Vista) then shutdown the computer. Turn it back on. As soon as you see the Dell Logo, keep on pressing F12. Then select "CD/DVD\015\012ROM" from the choices and press enter. When you see the prompt "Press\015\012any key to boot from the CD", keep on tapping the "Enter" key. If your\015\012CD/DVD drive is working fine, you should see a page that'd say "Windows\015\012is loading files". If not then the system is not detecting your drive.\015\012Then check the BIOS page. F2 on the Dell Logo. Then look for Drive\015\012Configuration. If the drive isn't there, reseat it. Physically remove\015\012the drive from the computer and put it back in. Then restart.
