Yesterday, I went to put a CD rom into my CD drive and it would not read it. I went into my computer to check on the drive and to my shock it was not there! I checked in the 'system properties' screen and its gone from there too. When I boot up my computer it does not recognize it either as it used to. I have no idea what happened to it. The only odd thing that happened was that we had two brief moments of power loss at our house yesterday and the computer re-booted as a result. Other than that I was using the drive earlier last week without any problems. Now, how do I re-install the drive? I tried the Add/Remove Hardware option, but it does not recognize it as a PnP device or as a non-PnP device. Unfortunately I do not have a driver disk for the drive either as the drive is original to the computer.
