    Compaq CQ60 laptop with Vista will not recognize disk drive. Device shown as working normally. Got external DVD drive from friend but laptop did not recognize it that drive either. Hooked up external
    hard drive, and it was recognized right away so problem seems isolated to disk drive. Any help would be appreciated.

    have you checked on the computer what software it uses to identify and use the drive? usually, there is a program that will help it.
