No CD/DVD or CD-ROM access is missing error Code 31, Code 32, Code 19, Code 39, or Code 41

Try this if the optical drives are not appearing in My Computer or Device Manager.

This is sometimes caused by the removal of Roxio software.

Run regedit and navigate to registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.

Highlight it and in the right pane, find the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters values.
Highlight each one in turn, right click and delete them.
Close regedit and restart the computer.

If in doubt make a restore point before making changes. click here

You've said you can't see the drive in my computer.

Can you see them in device manager? (Control panel, system, hardware tab, device manager).

If not can you see them in the system BIOS? (press DEL at start-up)

If not, it could be the cabling or hardware itself.
