Default Laptop won't recognize my dvd/cd-r drive

I am using a Toshiba Satelliate A-85 with 1GB of memory. This morning when I booted up my computer it wouldn't recognize my dvd/cd-r drive. I have checked under My Computer and it shows only the C: drive. Last night I was downloading some different programs to burn my dvd's on cd-r's. The drive worked fine last night.

Anyone have any ideas? I really need help.
