Everytime I try to burn CDs no matter which CD Burner Program I use it says there is no CD-Recorder hooked up but thats impossible because my CD-Recorder is build in to my computer, I have also noticed that when I try to go to use my F Drive (My CD-Recorder) theres no where to select it on my computer its as if it doesn't even exist in my computer, Its worked before and I have been able to burn CDs, but now it seems as if something happened, I thought it could be broken but I don't understand how could be. If you know how I could resolve this problem much help is needed,
The only light that shows up is an orange light nothing happens once I put a Music CD, software, games or anything in the drive. I haven't had any recent softwares installed the last software I had installed was Dogz 5. When I go to my documents and use the drop down menu The F: Drive doesn't appear to click on. Is there anyway I get my F: Drive working again?
When I go to the device manager and then click CDROM it only brings up COMPAQ SC-140S and thats it so when I go to settings on the COMPAQ SC-140S it says Current Drive letter assignment E: and thats it and then reserved drive letters Start drive letter: E: and then End Drive letter F: when I start my computer and ScanDisk appears its only scans the C: and D:

Did you add anything new, hardware wise, to your computer? Upgrade your bios?

How many CD/RW or CD roms do you have installed? Check the bios and see if they all show up. Its possible the cable has been disconnected. Are you saying device manager only indicates one of your roms? Need more info.

It only shows my CD-Rom in my device manager, I only have one CD-RW and its built into my computer, its worked before and then started acting up like this and then worked again but now its stopped and it won't work at all. I haven't put any new hardware into my computer. I'm not sure how to get to my BOS to check if anyone could tell me how to check it that would be a help thanxs Jenn

What is the make, model and age of your computer? Explain what you mean by the CD-RW is built in. How you enter the bios depends on the computer make and model. I take it you have/had one CD rom and one CD-RW installed. Is that correct?
