CD rom bay not working properly

HP Recommended
Elitebook 8470P
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I use this laptop for 10 months now. my CD rom was fine until July, 2020 when I noticed my disc it not working properly like the device itself was good but it didn't detect on My Computer or BIOS. I tried to update my BIOS but still no luck so I just abandoned it because no one uses CD rom these days.


Until I purchased a caddy and install to my laptop and still didn't detect.


Take note: The device itself is working but it didn't detect on My Computer, BIOS, diskmgmt, etc.


What could be the problem? Thank in advance!

I've just reset the BIOS and the CD ROM drive got detected again.


BTW thanks! 😄
