HP Pavilion DV9925nr optical drive not showing up in Bios, my computer, not detected at all. What can I try to resolve this?
What you need to do is download and install Daemon Tools for free, then use it to mount a virtual (fake) CD drive. Then go to device manager, and you will see that the CD/DVD drive category has re-appeared for the fake drive. Select this category and scan for new devices. Your original CD/DVD drive should reappear on my computer and device manager. Enjoy! I only had to down load and install it and my drive started working, i was about to take the laptop apart then i saw this post.
