  1. Recently both dvd rom and cd rom drives on my girlfriends pc are missing. I can't find them in device manager or control panel or using windows explorer. I have also tried system restore. Nothing new has been added to the machine . I have scanned with ad-aware and spybot search and destroy. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated. I tried searching thru old posts, but came up bust.:confused:

    Do they show up in Bios?

    If not, maybe you should replace the ide cable.

    Regards Howard :)

    Thanks to both of you. I'm trying the reg fix right now. I was hoping not to open the case , but that was my next step, thanks again.

    Reg fix didn't work. I guess I'm goin in.

    Cable was partially out, darn those Thanks for your help. This place ROCKS!
    I should've edited my last reply, not posted 2 new ones. Must make mental note.
