Default Optical Drive is Missing

I recently built and after installing the OS and some drivers from disc to get started I'm not sure just how much I need the DVD drive, but the fact that it suddenly stopped being recognized slightly bothers me. How do I troubleshoot this? This is the drive: ASUS Model DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk Black - Newegg.com

Thanks.

Does BIOS recognize it?

Does it s how up in Computer?

Does it show up in Disk Management (Start > Right click Computer > Manage... > Disk Management on the left panel)?

When I went to "Computer" the only thing that showed up was the C drive. Previously it showed both the C and the DVD drive. I wasn't too concerned at the time so I didn't look into it much. I'll look in those places when I get back on later.
