Your CD Drive should be listed, click on it to enable it.
- Then try your CD tray to see if it opens and close normally.
- It should now also appear on the "My Computer"

What if your CD Drive is not listed?

I'm not sure I understand your question. Are you saying the drive is not listed.... where? Perhaps in My Computer and/or Device Manager?

If this is correct then you may need to do the "delete upper and lower filters fix". The procedure is written in many threads in this forum.

I downloaded the CDGONE file and it worked in restoring my CD and DVD drives to the My Computer window....however when I insert a disk, it is still not recognized, I.E. no autoplay and when i double click the drive letter, it says "Please insert a disk".

Any ideas on what I might try next?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

What kind of disk are you inserting that can't be read? eg: dvd blank disk or recorded dvd disk, cd disk, other? Can that disk be read on another machine?

If the drive is not flagged as having a problem (in device manager), then you most likely have a bad drive.

I had to post that I was having the same problem of the system all of a sudden not recognizing my CD/DVD drive and gettin that yellow "!" in the device manager for it as well.

Many thanks to this website and the posting of the solution. It worked great. I used the CDGONE file link to take care of the problem automatically instead of manually going into the registery myself.

My laptop (for anyone else interested) is a Panasonic Toughbook CF-W5M model operating on Windows XP Home.

Again, thank you SO MUCH!
