Red face DVDwriter disappearin

tbh i've never had this problem on any of my previous pc's :/

on my brothers pc, if he did somthing on his pc to quick as it started up, his 2nd DVDrom/writer wouldnt appear at start up, normally he'd have to restart..

the other week, i got myself a new pc, up untill yesterday it was ok, now i seem to be gettin the same problem..

anyone know what causes it and a solution?

thanks
