Fix My DVD Burner / blu ray icon gone missing


Okay Sometimes there is an easy fix to the missing dvd burner or cd burner / rom or blu ray burner/rom.

Step 1: Check all Cables in Computer are plugged in correctly.

Step 2: If Computer On , Shut Down the Computer. If computer Off Turn the Computer On.

Step 3: When the computer is loading up (About 2/3 seconds after you press the Big Button)  press the special keyboard letter/number F8 ( The One button ) A couple of times.

Step 4: Select Safe Mode.

Step 5: Once safe mode of Windows has loaded right click on my computer and then select Properties. Then Click Device Manager.

If not Windows 7 (Which is safer and better than any other windows operating system) , Then there may be a few more clicks here and there with the mouse.

Step 6: Device Manager: Click on the little arrow icon on  DVD/CD Drives. Right Click the Drive and Select Uninstall.

Step 7: Restart the Computer and go back into safe mode by pressing F8 (The one button not the two button version).

Step 8: Go back into the Device Manager and Then Up the top there is A couple of buttons like File, Action.

First click on DVD/CD Drivers there is no need to click the little arrow.

Then select the menu button, Action And click Scan for Hardware Changes.
