    Hi, my laptop seems to have eaten my CD drive... I went to burn some music on to a cd yesterday and apparently I don't have a CD drive anymore.

    There isn't even a DVD/CD-ROM Drives category in device manager. :confused:

    When I put a disk in, I can hear it loading, and the little light flashes on the side, so I dont think its somehow managed to disconnect itself.

    I'm using Vista if that helps

    Thanks

    You can try pulling the drive out and pushing it back in but other than that if it isn't in Device manager, it really has gone bad.
