    Are you using windows?

    Does the drive spin up when you put a cd in it?

    Do you see it as a drive listed in my computer?

    Check device manager to see if there are any problems.

    Have you checked the cables?

    No CD

    Im having the same problem, I will pop in a cd and nothing happens. I can even go to Windows explorer and double click on the cd-rw drive and it will give me a blank explorer window under that drive. Please help
