DVD drive disappeared

My second DVD drive without any recourse seems to have disappeared.
It has been fine for 2 years. It was there yesterday and has now vanished on boot up.
Jas anyone any suggestions.

My first thought is the ribbon cable has cmoe adrift, open your case and make sure its seated properly. Unless of course theres no power to it, does it open and close? Is it listed under my computer?

Meant to say "come adrift" sorry.

No - cables are fine.
No - the door doesn't open, there appears to be no power and the drive isn't recognised anywhere.

As I booted up to check the post screen, the DVD returned as if by magic.
