    I have a dell inspiron laptop running windows vista, which is 2 years old. Recently, whenever I put a cd in the disk slot, the computer doesn't register that it is there. When I go to my computer, there are options, like autoplay at the top of the screen, but there isn't a symbol for the cd, and if I click on autoplay it ejects the cd. Itunes also doesn't seem to know that there is a cd in the drive. Help?

    It maybe your cd- rom lazer isn't working properly or you have a corrupted operating system. I would try restart> first boot device cd rom> win xp in drive and see if it reads it that way at all. If not then I suggest you get a new cd rom drive for your laptop. Sorry I can't be anymore helpful I hope this post sparks new ideas for your problems.
