You should be directed into the Registry;
Start> search for "regedit" (wait for it to populate and then right click, choose to run as administrator)
Then follow these steps pricisely, do not delete anything that I do not advise you to delete as this can very easily damage your operating system
It is very easy, just intimidating:
3) Current Controlset
7) in the right hand window delete "Upperfilters" and "Lower Filters"
Close it out and DONE.
Turn off your laptop, remove the battery and hold the power button for 45 seconds.
Return the battery and power on.
Your CD/DVD Drive will have returned.
If this doesnt help then we should assume that your hardware is bad.
google how to remove and replace the drive on your computer (usually one screw on teh bottom of the notebook under the cover and barely to the side of your HDD mounts. Usually there is one bolt off to the side of the top left corner screw holding the Mouting Bracket.)
Hope this helps. I was an HP Laptop technician (and geek) for some time.
