Laptop, a problem best left to the repair guy. ssddx December 6, 2010 6:45:20 PM depends on if this is an old cd drive that failed or if this is a new drive that doesnt appear. All newer drives should be plug and play... I havent had a single one that didnt. In either case do as fihart suggests and get a replacement I would say. Or if its new you could try finding drivers (if you dont want a new one) depends filhart. some laptops have a removable dvd drive (to swap out with floppy drive, etc). in such cases you could replace the drive in a laptop as well.
