My computer worked fine until I updated my windows XP. When i restrarted my computer (after the update), i was not longer able to open my CD-rom drive. It does still exist in my system. I can find it in my bios and in my device management, but it doesn't show any icons in "my computer", and i can't  open it threw a folder (it only gives me the error "This devise is unavidable").

Please help me if you know how to solve this problem.
