Hello,

I have a problem with my cpu! The cd/dvd drive wont open even though it lights up! On the computer, there is no cd/dvd rw drive showing, only the local disk. Is it because that my cpu is dusty and needs cleanup? Or is it my cpu is actualy broken!!! Please help me! I would appreciate the help!

Hello

The drive will not show unless there is a disk in it.

If it does not open, it could because a defective switch button or a defective motor, I suggest you consult a repair shop.

Good luck

Hi,
Please do the following steps:

1) Open File Explorer if you're using Windows 10 or Windows 8. Search for it or use the WIN+X menu to open it quickly.

2) Open Windows Explorer in earlier versions of Windows.
Once open, navigate to the optical drive from the menu on the left. This drive is often auto-named based on what disc is inside the drive but there's usually a small disc icon to help identify it.

Tip: If you have trouble finding it, look for This PC on the left in Windows 10 or 8, or Computer in earlier versions. Click the icon to the left to expand this if it's collapsed.
3) Right-click or tap-and-hold on the optical drive and choose Eject from the menu that pops up or down.
4) The drive bay or disc should spin down and eject within seconds.

Tabeer, if there is no disk in the cd drive, do you think it will show on Explorer ?
