CD-RW DRIVE/CD Drive Not showing up under device manager.

Hola,

I have a dvd-RW drive and a regular cd drive installed on my computer. Up
until a few days ago it was working fine. Now it dosen't even show up under
the device manager. I ran a compelte virus scan which came up with nothing. I
tried using the Microsoft auto-fix program and it failed. I followed the
instructions for a reg edit of the upper and lower files and still no sucess.

I'm kinda at a loss here. The drives open fine I haven't installed or
removed anything major recently that I can think of. Once I put a game or any
cd in it just comes back err. cannot locate disc.

Any help appreciated!
