I look into Devices Manager

Thanks

Look in the Disk Management Utility (Start=>Right-click "Computer"=>Manage=>Disk Management)

Do you see your CD/DVD drive there?

that is a registry back up for CD drive .. search that on google then install on your computer .. reboot the unit after the installation ,, that will just take 5 sec to install since that is just a registry ..
