Angry Cdrom Drive invisible

When I look for my CD-ROM drive in Windows Explorer, (or any other program for that matter) it is not there. I know it is not a hardware problem because i can boot it. What should I do?

check the device manager, if it shows up as a ? try installing the drivers for it.

Try Windows Update. Run it and check if the CD-ROM drivers are in the list.

if you drive is listed in Device Manage remove it and restart then search for new hardware and windows should pick it up. or make sure that the CD-Rom drive is plugged into your computer ?? should simple but that may be the problem.

How long have you had the Drive and has it been acting funny in the fast few days before it went?
