It sounds like you could have a problem with the hardware driver for you computer. You can visit the site below and download the driver reset tool. On the site you will see a link with instructions on how to download and install the program. Once you've done this try rebooting your computer and see if you DVD burner now appears under my computer.

    You can also try downloading the firmware for your drive by going to:

    Once on the site click on Firmware from the top menu bar. Next click on LiveUpdate full version.

    This updates the software on your CD/DVD drive. If this does not correct the problem, the problem may be your drive itself is faulty.
