Default Computer does not recognize cd/dvd rom

I have a problem. My computer is not recognizing my NEC 1300A. Also, it does not recognize Alcohol. When I open my 'My Computer' all I see at the bottom is my floppy drive. It's strange because everything was fine this afternoon. Can anyone please help me.

that too. i ahve heard more than one story of coincidence like this. check if your optical drives are registered in BIOS. that will tell you if they are connected or not.
