I would appreciate any suggestions as to why my computer stops recognizing my cd/dvd drive. When I reboot and open my computer the icon is there but, after a few minutes or if I open Nero to try to burn a disc the icon disappears. If I put a disc in to try an installation the drive tries to read but has trouble and eventually hangs up. I've used the drive to run a live linux disc, so I know it works without booting into windows. I'm running xp by the way.
