CD/DVD-ROM drives and rewriters only require the standard Windows drivers.

I had this problem earlier this year and discovered, after several days of puzzlement, largely due to the fact that my DVD-ROM drive and CW rewriter were listed in Device Manager in Safe Mode, that it was due to a slightly loose IDE cable connection on the motherboard.

During a session of improving airflow through a cable crowded case I had inadvertently lifted the secondard IDE cable slightly out of the motherboard socket.

Reinserting it properly brought everything back to normal.
