CD/DVD drive

#1
I'm using a Vaio laptop, vgn-fw170j, i had windows vista premium before.
My computer isn't detecting any drive other than disk C:
I've tried going to the sony esupport website to find a driver for this, but I didn't see anything that would fit:(
Any suggestions?

try downloading the Vista driver set from the Vaio website and then installing it through device manager-->update driver. then point it to the file you d/loaded and extracted :)

could someone link me to the page? the only drivers i've found don't affect the CD/DVD drive, or maybe I'm just ignorant and it's right in front of my eyes, but all I see is drivers for the motherboard, blu-ray, wireless, etc.

See this post:

You shouldn't even have to reboot. After you have finished editing the registry, just go in to the device manager, delete the CD/DVD drive, then rescan for hardware changes.

This should resolve your issue

Someone should sticky one of those thread explaining "where has my DVDRom gone" and probably also Where has my HDD gone

*EDIT* I made one to sticky
