Hi guys! I know this is off topic but for some reason my CD Drive has gone off my laptop; its no longer on my Vaio for some reason....

I have tried searching for it and have looked in My Computer but its not there.

Also, I put an original DVD into it and other CDs but they were not recognised....

Any ideas whats happenend guys?

I would appreciate any advice on how I could recover the drive.

Thanks in advance guys!

PS- my laptops is running on XP Home Edition. Also, to the mods, its really important I fix this and since there are no people on the PC Problems forum at the moment, please do not remove this post from the DBox section as the people here are really helpful! :THANKS:

Does the drive power up, and can you (for example) access it in DOS mode?
Also, is the drive visible in the BIOS? Do you have that specific IDE channel enabled?
