After two years working perfectly my cd and cdr drives have vanished. Although they light up they are not recognised on boot up. I have removed and reconnected the cables 50 times but cannot think of what has gone wrong.
Any help very welcome.

if this is a silly thing to ask then my apologies but u have detected them in bios...yes?

Have you installed any new cdr software? If you are using WinXP and have installed an early version of Easy CDcreator 5 this can do it.

Many thanks for help.
They don't exist in BIOS or Device Manager. I have not installed any software on Win 98.
Am I going mad?

They worked again after I replaced the connecting cable
