    My CD burner on my laptop stopped working several months ago, and it originally would merely lock up the PC whenever I attempted to burn a CD. Now, however, it won't even detect or read any CDs that I happen to put in there, even though the drive itself is still detected. I'm running on an eMachines M6805 (laptop), if y'need more, just ask.

    I would have to agree that the cd drive is probably toast. It still may be detected, the logic may be good. Something like the little motor or circuits that spin the cd may have failed.
    The good news is now you can get that cd / dvd DL burner you always wanted.
    get one with he pioneer chip set
    NEC, PIONEER, LaCIE,PLEXTOR, BENQ,LG

    You have to make sure it will fit in your notebook
