Problem

Sometimes my notebook shows the optical drive as power off:

But the hint there

is not changing this state.

Solution

By looking in the device manager you see the next problem:

So open the properties via right mouse click.

This gives you the hint to remove the drive first.

“Windows cannot use this hardware device because it has been prepared for "safe removal", but it has not been removed from the computer. (Code 47)”

Whether you select the comment by dragging the mouse over the the hidden part or pressing the button “Properties”.

So we unplug and reinsert the ultrabay.

If you think, now the system is working – you are wrong. Now the system is the meaning, that the ultrabay is unplugged.

You could verify this by refresh the view in the device panel. Now there is no longer our device.

Yet your great gig comes – unplug the ultra bay and reinsert it a second time!

After this you could hear with a media inside, that the motor is really started and we have a working device

What a difficult birth …

Update

If the drive doesn’t start, then try to use the context menu “Power On” in Explorer.
