Hey Dear!

Just follow these steps and you will found your CD Rom working.

1. Click on Start button.

2. In search box, type regedit and hit enter.

3. It will open the Registry editor. Go to the following path by expanding (+) sign.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > CurrentControlSet > ControlClass > {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

4. Here on the right side if you see UpperFilters or LowerFilters, just delete them by pressing right click on it.

5. Once done, reboot your computer.

When the windows come back on desktop after rebooting, you will be able to see your CD Rom working.

There are several possibilities which have been causing this issue. Out of these, driver issue is the one with high probability. You can check that whether your optical drive is detected by windows or not. To do so follow these steps,

  • Click on START and move to Control Panel.
  • Click on System and Maintenance and then on Device Manager.
  • If prompted, then click Allow button.
  • In Device Manager, expand DVD/CD-ROM  drives and check whether it is working properly or not (If it has yellow mark on it then right click on it and click uninstall)

Finally restart your PC and wait for the drive to respond.
