    I have a Dell XPS M140 with a CD/DVD drive. I'm not sure what has happened but the computer no longer recognizes when I put a CD in the drive - either a CD with data or a blank CD. It does recognize DVD's. Under My Computer the D drive says DVD-RW. I honestly don't remember if it has always said that or if I've somehow turned off the CD capability. Any help would be appreciated as I am not very technically inclined when it comes to the computer.

    Welcome to TSG!

    We can try disabling and then reinstalling the drive (not physically- just the driver). Let me know what version of Windows you have and I can give you more detailed instructions!
