lost cd re writable and dvd rom drives

  SABOWN 19:45 21 Nov 2004

don't often use these drives, but decided today to put some music on. when i inserted the cd nothing happened in either drive.
i looked on my system and nothing is listed on these, all other drives are there.
is there anything downloadable to help me trace where they may have gone, as i can't find anything in the related help files in windows.
my system is a p4 3.01 ghz running xp

are your drives listed on your device manager?

Go to device manager and see if they are listed first.

If they are and you have any yellow exclamtion marks next to them with any error messages let us know what they say. Right click and uninstall them both,
reboot your system and see if the come back.

If you dont know what i am on about or the drives fail to re-appear again let us know.
