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?
