Hello, you are so funny SeekPCRepair, when my neighbours went missing she thought it was personal (she has had some wicked pc issues last year!!!) Piap,has the CD rom icon dissapeared off the my computer window? This can mean evil gnomes have stolen it ( a fellow once said) but actually, it is something that sometimes just happens. It can be there one minute and gone the next.
You do need to go through the steps above as SeekPCRepair has said, but if nothing above works, and no entries at all appear for your drive under device manager ( found by clicking my computer, then view system info, then hardware, then device manager) and you have opened up your pc, and checked if the power ribbons (cables) are secure, and then looked for it again, it is either defective or a software issue. If all else fails, you can try editing the registry, as it may be corrupt driver files but first you need to try uninstalling the drive and reinstalling it if you can find the driver deatils. If this does not work, try downloading new driver from manufactures website. Install with this and see if it works. Post back if none of this works above and i will tell you how to step by step edit the registry to repair corrupt files.

Tips for a great answer:
Start, Run, and type regedit and press
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the
following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step
4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone. or
you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard or
you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall your DVD/CD then reinstall the driver for this device
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down cd dvdrom drives if you see a yellow question or exclamation mark?! or a red x right click you will need to update the driver or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver
hope this helps
