check ur cables & power supplies connecting to the drive that is missing on windows maybe that would be the problem (replace any old IDE's and change power connectors to the drive )
reformat, nooo fkn way, done that too many times in the past getting sick of it. I've checked the cables and they're fine but now the problem is relating to nero burning software...Nothing will detect my CD/DVD drives but they are active therefore i cant burn with nero or any burning software even WMP.
It seemed that i had an infection that stopped me from using any software to burn or use my CD/DVD drives eg. Nero... The infection displayed:
"THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF SECRETS THAT MAY BE STORED IN A SINGLE SYSTEM AS BEEN EXCEEDED"
i simply used combofix - http://www.combofix.org/
it went through a good 20-30min process and deleted a whole lot of sh*t that my computer was infected with, then everything is back to normal, all CD/DVD drives are detected.
Just posting this for other peoples needs since i searched the whole net looking for a solution that only i came up with...
