Yes it is a dvd/cd rom drive. When I put anything in nothing loads, you can here the drive start and make a noise like it is reading it then it does nothing! When you click on the dvd/cd rom icon and click play or explore while you put a cd or dvd in it says there is nothing in the drive please insert dvd or cd , but the dvd is already in there. So it acts like it dont know you put a dvd or cd in.
