    I am having a problem uploading a music cd to my computer, I was able to upload music cds up until last week. My cd drive is not even recognized in my comptuer, and I dont know what to do to get my cd drive, my only thinking is to reinstall the cd drive, but I dont know how to do that in Windows Vista. Have any suggestions of how to find my cd drive becuase it is not being recognized. I have an Acer Laptop 5100-3949 if that gives you any way to know how to fix it

    No installation or drivers necessary. They are plug-and-play. Does the drive show up in Device Manager?

    See if the drive appears in BIOS. Check all the connections. Anything else having problems?
