If not open disk utility and see if it is there if so make sure it says it is mounted if not mount it. It should show on the desktop when there is a disk in the drive.

Hi,

Try to Enter BIOS and check whether your drive is detected or not?

hi i am having the same problem. i have checked disk utility. it does not have a cd drive under usb. it has an unknown 16gb drive that i cannot do anything to since it is "busy".
I don't know how to open bios.
