So, I was carrying my laptop in a duffel bag a few weeks ago, and accidentally dropped it a good couple of feet onto the ground. Nothing seemed broken at first, but several days later, I noticed that I wasn't able to rip music from a CD in the drive. Sure enough, in My Computer, there is no recognition of there even being a CD drive. Assuming that my dropping the laptop was to blame, what are my options, if any, for fixing the drive?. If it's something else, would a registry edit be able to solve the problem? Thanks for anyone who has advice or suggestions.
