hi guys. im in really desperate need of advice!

im using windows xp.
just recently when i logged into my computer and i wanted to run a cd, the cd doesn't run!
i thought it was just the autoplay function disabled so i went under "My Computer" wanting to run the cd manually.
but to my horror really, my d:\ was gone!
i am clueless about what's happening and the only different thing that i've done for the past few days was doing AVG scans and spyware scans. but i don't think that causes the loss of my D drive?

and i really have no idea where the problem lies.
-the cd itself doesn't run (it doesn't spin)
-there is no d:\

and this just happened out of the blue! and i need to run a software desperately. so i will really appreciate any help! thanks in advance!

ive googled and tried various methods like the one on typing regedit under run and restarting,going to computer management to add a drive,downloading a bootdisk.....but nothing works.!!!!

if the cd does not spin, perhaps the cd-rom is broke? CD-roms are probably the one of the most likely pieces to fail because they have more moving parts than almost everything else.
