This is very strange. In my device manager it only shows these things:
Advanced Power Management Support
Dial-Up Adpater
Dail-Up Adapter #2 (VPN Support)
Microsoft Virtual Pirvate Networking Adpater
[+] Plug and Play BIOS (this has a plus next to it)
Processor Support
Standard Modem
System Board
This is very strange, where is my cdrom etc...? I recently formatted too.

If you have already rebooted, try going to add new hardware in the cotrol panel and let windows detect it for you.

kinger2000, in the device manager, you've checked the right radio button
[ ] View device by type   [x] View device by connection.

If expand Plug and Play BIOS, further expand the PCI bus, expand the secondary Bus master IDE controller,
your cdrom is there.

Or,

You checked back the left radio button
[x] View device by type   [ ] View device by connection.

Your cdrom device is there.
