My DVD Drive has disapeared from both my computer and device manager.
When I switch the computer on the DVD tray opens, but if a press the open button whilst using the computor nothing happens (tray does not open, no light)
If it may help my dvd is: Philips SDVD8311. Have tried re-installing the driver but did not find drivers for this model on the internet.
Also i am currently cleaning my system from a recent virus outbreak, and receiving help on another thread- and will be needing the dvd drive to get the system cleaned. Note that the dvd stoped working +- 1 week after the virus problem.
