    No DVD Drive in Explorer.


    There is no 'D:' drive in the explorer tree.

    But if I click on 'This PC' it will be listed in the 'devices' pane that pops up as 'drive D.'

    If I click on it in devices there it asks me to insert a disk. Whether or not there is a disk in there. It doesn't seem to realise there is one there.

    It was working fine last time I used it - couple of months ago I think.

    Anything I can do?

    :)

    Dvd drive not showing


    Is this the HP 15r014tx in your system specs? If so, try the steps in this thread....
    https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebo...r/td-p/6186456

    It may be that your DVD drive has a hardware failure (as was suggested in that thread).

    More HP support and diagnosis suggestions here in their Help pages....

    No DVD Drive in Explorer.

    DVD Drive issues.

    The games used to run, now apparently the disks don't even read.

    Go to Device Manager and remove the DVD
    Scan for hardware changes and update driver as OS suggests

    Still not working?

    1) Clean the heads.
    2) Run a diagnostic program on the drive.

    Nothing else has changed about your system aside from the OS?

    Revert to XP Home, assuming you don't find the source of the problem in steps above.
