Does a light illuminate on this drive to show that it is getting power to it, if yes see below;
I am not sure if I am posting in the correct forum but it has to do with my CD ROM ... The top one does not open
There may be a small hole on the front of the drive, if there is get yourself something like a straightened out paperclip and push it into the opening, this will manually open the device if it is jammed or has a sticky mechanism.
This is often the result of the read/write lasers of the optical drive having failed.
the bottom one does not play. The light is on but it isn't doing anything

I am embarrassed to say that my top drive does work and it did open. Apparently I was trying to open it with the tip of my nail and but it wouldn't open .. my 10 yr old daughter went to use it and she got it to open lol. Think it wouldn't opened cuz I was not using my fingertip? Anyhoot it plays and works well ...
I do have a question tho .... what is the bottom drive for?? I put a disc in it and it did nothing ....

Check the front of the drive as it may have etched on it what it is intended to do as in CD or DVD Rom or RW, as for it not working as I said earlier it is often the result of the read/write lasers of the optical drive having failed, a loose or damaged SATA or data ribbon could also be the cause - a physical check can identify if it is the latter but if the laser has failed the drive is hosed I`m afraid.
