hey i just got a second hand COMPAQ PRESARIO F700 from my step sister. When she had it it worked fine, but now that i got it the cd d with vista drive doesnt work. Its a dvd/cd burner and it will not open when i press its button, howeever the little light on it is on. If i manually open it and put a disc in it still doesnt work. If i go to windows media player to burn a disc it says YOU NEED A CD DRIVE TO BURN OR RIP A DISC or somehtign along those lines. ANyone know whats wrong with it? I am a computer newb. Thanks fellow pithaleons.
You can open it from within windows. Go to my computer, right click on the drive and click eject.

Your computer doesn't seem to detect it. Probably a driver problem, bad connections inside, or it's just plain defect.

I agree, it sounds like a driver issue is the most likely problem. Search the brand and model and you can probably download them from the internet.
