I'm running winXP Pro, CD Rom & writer worked just fine till now, since yesterday
the OS doesn't see the CD Rom & writer, I go to device manager to see what happen and I notice that they are not even listed, no error message nothing they just disapeared.
I've unistalled Nero 6 + Clone CD which were my favourite burning software, went to XPsafe mode even there, there was no track of my Mitsumi 4804 burner and Pioneer 105 (slot in CD rom)
My external USB DVD burner is seen by device manager and works just fine.
Of course this always happens before you ghost your config!!
I really would like to get over this one without having to reinstall.
Thanks for your help, I've never seen anything like it.
