    CD/DVD is not found in Windows Vista System

    I inserted DVD in the DVD Drive in Windows Vista System. I tried to open and play it, but could not find it. I removed and reinserted it, but could not find it still in the System. I removed and inserted the DVD Driver to solve the problem, which also does not help me. What might be the problem? Please, help me!

    Hi,

    To solve your problem , let me suggest you a few steps.

    1. Check the Power cable connecting DVD drive to the computer.
    2. Check Data cable of the drive.
    3. Clean the drive bay using jet of air and possibly a disk cleaning kit.
    4. Install a new Device Driver for CD/DVD drive in Windows. Use, ControlPanel>System and Security>Device Manager>DVD/CD Drive>Driver>Uninstall, then Update Driver,to reload a new driver for optical drive.

    This should solve the issue if there is no physical damage of the drive.

    Thanks,

    press Windows key and R
    Type regedit, and then click OK.
    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.
    In the navigation pane, locate and then click the following registry subkey:
