When I insert my CD into the built in burner on my computer

Customer Question

When I insert my CD into the built in burner on my computer it does not appear on my desk top. Therefore I get no drop down menu in iTunes that I can select "burn CD" on.
The selections on the left side of the screen in iTunes also has no CD icon displayed. Do I need a new battery somewhere inside the computer to run the CD burner?

The problem is not a battery.

Either the cd drive iteself is broken or the driver is bad.

will it play a cd ?
