Ya basically i know my cdrom drive works. And it has been fine. But all of a sudden, its not listed in 'My Computer'  Also i installed daemon tools, if u guys dont know, it creates virtual cdrom drives.  And my computer/explorer wont show those drives either. what is going on?

I just now looked in my device manager. my cdrom drives have been disabled. And it says 'windows cannot enable the drive' when i try to enable it.

i would remove the deamon and check and see if your cd-rom comes back, if not, have you checked your device manager for any signs of it beeing a driver issue? What OS are you using?
