My D drive won't show a CD or open even though I know that there there. It just stoped working one day. Should I just Reformat the computer or try something to get it to work.

did you g control paner-system.."check device manager" check the drive if any yellow exclamation...maybe you find an error there could be error 39 or 49

It's possible that your cables came loose. If you can open up your case, remove the cables from your CD drive one at a time and plug them back in.

Is your drive detected during POST? If you don't know what I mean by this, I can explain further.
