i have a cd-rom drive (E:) and a dvd-r/rw drive (D:) and recently the E: drive hasnt been acknowledged in 'My Computer', and wont auto-run inserted discs or games. Comes back eventually by itself (sometimes).

Try fitting a new Ribbon cable

before you fit new cable switch them round, then if it works you know the cable is at fault.
