Exclamation DVD/CD Drive Stopped Working

Hi,

I used my DVD/CD drive yesterday but today it doesn't work. It's recognized when POSTING and in BIOS but in Device Manager, it has a yellow exclamation point on the icon and it's not available in My Computer.

Today I updated my mobo's BIOS. I'm not sure if the DVD/CD drive worked before I did so I tried a Restore Point to before I updated the BIOS but it didn't fix the problem with the DVD/CD drive.

I've attached a screenshot of the message that I receive when I click on Properties in Device Manager.

I tried to update the driver for the drive but there wasn't one available.

Does anyone know how I can fix this. Any thoughts or suggestions would be very much appreciated.
