Hello, I have an Acer Aspire (the manual claims it is in the 4520/4220 series). My disk drive is not showing up in windows, yet it is showing up in the device manager and it claims to be "working perfectly" yet when I put a cd in the drive it whirs for a few seconds and nothing happens. What is wrong with my disk drive? Also, I'm a total noob at computer stuff, so if you can help, explain it to me like I'm five. Thanks in advance!

The CD drive may be failing. You may have to buy a new one. You could try going to device manager and right click on your drive and click remove and then reboot your computer to let win install it again. If that doesn't work time for a new drive.
