Cd-r don't work

Question

My computer stopped recognizing my cd-r drive. It started out just not letting me burn cd's but now the drive itself doesn't even show up in my computer or open when I press the button. I think maybe a wire came loose or something and I'll just plug it back in.

It is a possibility that the wire came out if it did so just plug it back in other possibility could be viruses but i highly don't think so you might want to check out the device manager to see if anything is wrong with the drive and the last thing to think about is if you updated or uploaded any new programs into your computer before this problem occured If that is the case then it means you have to delete those new uploads because then that is what is doing your computer harm.
