When i insert any cd/dvd in the drive its not autoplayed. the cd is not even detected. i had virtual drive installed which showed up. i uninstalled the virtual drive still the cd drive is missing. Even the usb drive doesn't show up!! plz help
Is the drive showing up in device manager ?
Update the driver, or delete it and reboot and new hardware should be detected, and drivers installed.
