Answers :

Ok if it is not in device manager than it is not either being powered up or you have a bad dvd rom, or you have a bad motherboard
It means that your device is not recognized in BIOS or OS due to device failure. Replace the device with a know good working one, and your issue should be resolved.

As a note; optical drives are the most failure prone devices I have serviced in my years of repair. This is especially true of portable/laptop devices which are subjected to much more rigorous conditions than home systems.
