Hello

Turn off your machine and then turn it back on, while it is starting up before the windows logo comes you have to tape on F8 repeatedly to get "Advanced Start up options" Screen.

From there select Safe mode.

In safe mode, continue to work there - don't do a restore if prompted.

Once you are on the desktop right click on my computer or computer which you will find from start menu or from the desktop.

From there select manage, on the management window left side click on device manager.

go to the CD drive and right click and enable.

What happens this time? Does the device enable? Note that if they are not visible there then click on VIEW, and then SHOW HIDDEN DEVICes.

if they are still not visible in device manager then

\015\012\015\012 \015\012
    \015\012
  1. \015\012 \015\012Open a command prompt (hold down windows key and press r, in the run menu type CMD and click ok)
    \015\012
  2. \015\012
  3. \015\012 \015\012Then Write the following: \015\012 \015\012\015\012SET DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES=1
Now close the device manager if you had it open, then open it again, again make sure show hidden devices is on and then you should be able to see the cd rom drives, enable them if possible.

If that is not possible, then go back into normal mode make sure you sign in with a Administrator account or that your account has computer administrator privaledges, then go to the device manager again try to enable them if it wont allow you to enable, then uninstall all the cd drives and restart the computer.

They will get installed when the machine starts up again and hopefully that will solve the issue.
