    - check ide cables , try switching them with hdd
    - run cd/dvd in pio mode in device manager -> ide controller
    - uninstall/remove cd/dvd from device manager and restart . it should automatically detect it again .
    - check jumpers and keep it as slave or cable select
    - make sure u dont keep the cd/dvd on the top most tray on the cabinet . keep it on the last but one slot to give room for air . cd/dvd's tend to heat up
    - if its all in warranty , get it serviced and demand it on the same day . u paid for it u deserve the service too
