Default DVD/CD Drive problem

I'm having a problem with my DVD Drive... its not detecting what I'm incerting, from DVDs to Games to Audio Disks... none of them are being detected by it, I've uninstalled and reinstaled the driver several times, and it has not worked. Suggestions?

Is your CD drive showing up on my computer?

If not the most common cause is the upper and lower buffer issue, heres how I fix them at work.

Firstly, make a backup of your registry or set a system restore point just incase.
Open Start
Type in the run or search box "regedit" without the quotation marks
navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Delete the keys named UpperFilters and LowerFilters.

Don't worry if you don't have both keys, just delete which ever is there and reboot.

I had something similar a couple of weeks ago, are you on windows vista?

If you are try un-installing the CD drive then restart, it should re-install.
Only do this as a last attempt though, i was really angry and nothing else worked but that did.

Apparently the problem comes from when vista updates itself so you might want to remove that option, if you are on vista that is.

Possibly faulty wiring, or something been knocked loose? I would check the wiring, just making sure nothing's been pulled out.
