If I put a disk in the drive it will not autostart. If I click my computer it does not list it, only drive c, floppy disk but not the dvd drive. What needs to be done?

Check all connections.

Check Event Viewer for any errors that reference any disk or drive.

Ok I do find some erros, but how do you know wich error is the cause? I don't see any that say anything about drives. I'm not very smart about the technical stuff. I also don't know when this occured. Is there a way to post the entire report here?

Any errors indicating "disk0" or something similar...are what you are looking for.

Do not post your entire log here.
