My cousin computer recently lost thier CD-Drive, I dont know how that happened. Thier Computer is Tiny, Windows ME,750 mhz,128 mb ram. I dont know the name of the CD-Drive, so i was wondering how i can get the lost CD-Drive back.

Try removing it from device manager then rebooting to see if windows picks it up, also check in the bios, or it could be a cable problem.

Try looking for a system restore point to before the drive dissappeared.If that doesn't work the drive may have failed---they don't last forever.

I've had this problem twice, at first I thought it was a conflict on the computer so I uninstalled everything I had downloaded and hey presto it re-appeared, well the same thing happened today I did the same and it re-appeared again, maybe it's a conflict with a new driver or something it's worth taking a look
