    Thanks for the information. I reset the cd/dvd registry and rebooted but it did'nt change anything the first time but i turned computer on today (3/2/09) and the cd/dvd drive and my external drive is working. Maybe that repaired it. I don't know but thanks for your help soution #2. Also thank you solution #1 for your information. It did reload the driver.

CD/DVD drives don't need downloadable drivers from the internet. If you are running Windows 2000, XP or Vista, the built in drivers in these OSs will be sufficent. A decoder program like PowerDVD is required to play movies, however.

I got the fix from Microsoft and run the exe to fix the "upper" something and after that it can see the CD/DVD drive. I think it is a Windows bug. Not a hardware failure. (Cost me a trip to local store)

Try running System Restore to a day just before this failed. It's a software issue according to other forum posts elsewhere.
