Please let me know the name of your operating system like Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 etc

Also, please check the USB cable you are using to connect the DVD drive with your laptop. Is it a Y-type cable with two USB connectors at one end and a mini USB connector in the other ?

C drive is the drive letter for your hard drive

Please try the following:

1 Please connect both USB connectors to two USB ports on your laptop

2 Wait for about two minutes. Then open My Computer

If the system is able to detect the drive, you will see a drive D: or E:
