The CD/DVD does not show in MY Computer even though it is in the Device Manager with no problems noted. I put a DVD or CD in the drive and it spins up then slows to a stop. I have removed and reinstalled the device, cleaned the registry, rebooted, checked the bios. I am out of ideas. Running XP Home, HP Pavilion dv5120us.

Went to Admin Tools, Disc Management and realized that the DVD Drive had no letter. Right clicked and gave it a drive designation and seems to be working. Don't know what happened to cause this but the solution was right under my nose.
