check to make sure your ide (wide, thin cables) and power cables are firmly attached to the rear of the cd rom.

did you try restarting your computer. Sometimes my cd rw and cd rom would do this. All i had to do is restart my computer and they would appear again.

The problem is fixed .....I took out the power cable of the drives, and then reconnected.

And I tried restarting before, but it didnt work ...

Thanks a bunch guyz

speaking of cd rws, my nero is acting strange lately. The cds are not being burned properly, files in the cd are slow to access, and some of them doesnt even work
