PC doesn't recognise my CD/DVD drive

Today I have lost my CD/DVD drive (E). It opens but doesn't read any disc I put in. It does not show in My Computer either. It's been working fine until I switched on today. Can anyone please shed any light on why this should be as I am at a loss.

Sorry rdave13 - I should have mentioned that it is Vista.

Many thanks rdave13. Having seen your link I was reminded of my "system Restore" facility which I used and have now got my drive back. Many many thanks again.
