If it doesn't work at all, go to My computer, right click>properties>device manager>hardware, then at the top you will see an icon that says(when you put the mouse over it) scan for new hardware. See it this shows the drive. You can also press F2 or DEL on boot up and highlight 'Standard CMOS Settings' and see if your drive is seen by the bios. You may have an option to press a key to detect all drives, or press enter on the 'secondary' line and see if it is recognised. If all this fails it may be that either the power connection to your drive has become detatched or the drive itself is faulty. Please rate this solution.

Tips for a great answer:
Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder 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.
hope this helps you
