Missing Files

My computer Running XP has lost the CD burner files & doesn't recognise it.
I cannot get the XP disk in to reinstall the files.
Any ideas how to get the running program to read from the drive?

Have you tried to do a system restore to a point when you had the cd burner files? also why can't you get the xp disk in???

It was the daughters computer & she'd left it so long the system restore didn't go back far enough.
I can't get the xp disk in as the computer as it doesn't recognise that there is a cd Rom/burner drive on the system. It's lost it files for that bit. (The MScdex I beieve)

Can't you go to the manufacturer of the cd rom/burner website and download the drivers for it?
