DVD Rom Drives Missing (D & E)

Yellow exclamation shown in device manager, would suggest drivers are their.

Try disconnecting data ribbons and reconnecting.

Dont disconnect anything with the machine running.

try system restore first.

Failing that, turn off, disconnect the drive(s)
boot up as normal. shut down, reconnect the drives and re-boot.

If the two drives show up in Device Manager in Safe Mode then the normal cause is loose cables or leads connections.

Otherwise WhiteTruckMan's suggestion is the standard method.
