Wow... I have no idea what the deal is there. That would actually happen to me on an old computer I used to have...

Go to the device manager - Right click My Computer, go to properties>Hardware(tab)>Device Manager.

There should be a CD/DVD Rom drives or something there. Click that and google what ever is under it.. best I can tell you and you arn't getting any other answers...

When I say google, I mean google "Whatever it says Drivers" or something.

Hope this helps!

Just for craps and giggles, check the BIOS to see if it is being detected at all.
