    No cdrom
    I have a sony Vaio VGN-SZ32CP dual core laptop running win 7 ultimate 32 bit.
    In "computer" only my hard drive shows up, not my optical drive.
    All drivers seem to be installed but i notice that in dev mgr the first ATA channel, channel 0, likely the hard drive, is mentioned twice. Channel 1,
    which is likely the cdrom, only shows up once.
    I notice that when a cd is in the drive it spins up for a while and then stops, which would be normal i think.
    Can anyone help me with this?
    thank you

    Does it show up under 'Device Manager' DVD/CDROM Drives?

    Look at your bios and see if it is showing up there. Also is this a new install on the OS or is this something that has come up during the use of the machine? i.e. It worked before and has now quit ?

    I've seen that before, it could be this fix:
