Re: Inspiron E1705 CD-ROM/DVD drive not working

A FUJITSU MHV2080BH is a Hard Drive.  Look in the Device Manager .........


Start | Control Panel | System in classic view | Hardware tab | Device Manager


Click on the (+) next to DVD/CD-ROM drives.  This will reveal the Brand and Model of
drive.  Please post that.

FUJITSU MHV2080BH is the only device that comes up under Disk Drives

 

There is no DVD/CD-ROM drive on the list.

ASSEMBLY..., DVD+/-RW..., 8X, IDE (INTEGRATED DRIVE ELECTRONICS) ..., NEC CORPORATION..., INSPIRON...

 

This is what my account at Dell says I have for a CD/DVD-ROM

When a drive does not appear in the Device Manager, it means Window does
not see it.  The usual cause is a poor contact or connection.  Physically
remove the drive from the system and inspect the connetions.  Reinstall
the drive in an effort to improve the connection.
