Do you mean it's physically not there or it doesn't show up in My Computer.

✔ Best Answer
It is possible that the disc could have gotten stuck up inside the drive if not put in correctly. I have seen that before. Can you open the CD tray?

I don't believe there is enough room to just loose a disk in a drive. The thing isn't open so it can't have fallen out in the back or side. It leaves someone took it out or aliens. Did you see any bright lights?

In all seriousness there is simply not enough room in the CD housing for it to have become stuck. The tray once it returns to the housing retains the cd place in it. It does not move, slide or lift. It follows that you may have removed it and forgotten or someone else has.

I've never disassembled a CD player (thank you for giving
me the idea!), but the CD must lift up a little bit, or it would
rub against the surface of the tray. It can't do that.

My computer's LG brand BluRay / DVD / CD player has a
tray that comes out. The tray is about 40% hole. The hole
is not circular, but U-shaped. The drive spindle must be at
the center of the hole when the tray goes in. So the tray
can go in and out without interfering with the spindle (or
vice-versa). So a disk might stay attached to the spindle
when the tray comes out. The disk would only need to
move upwards about twice its own thickness for the tray
to slide out under it.

I think we can mark this one "PLAUSIBLE".
