Hello. I have a 3 year old PC computer running windows 7, and I recently noticed that the CD-rom on it has stopped working. I don't use the CD-rom very often (it's probably been months since I last used it), and so I don't know for sure when this problem occurred. But today I tried to put a CD in it, and the thing wouldn't even open up. When I checked in My Computer it wasn't in their either, and I think it somehow broke since my computer isn't recognizing it. I opened up the side of the computer and checked inside to see if it somehow came unplugged. I jiggled the connection to make sure it was firm, and it appears to be plugged in but I'm not sure if these things have only 1 plug going into the motherboard, or maybe they have a second one for a power source (though I didn't see anything that looked like a second plug coming out of it). Anyway, I'm wondering if there is anything I can do from a software perspective to double check to see if my CD drive is indeed broken and it's time to get a new one. Thanks!
