If disks are recognized occasionally, you may have just dirty lenses. Get lens cleaner CD for a few bucks at any electronic store.
Any errors, regarding CD drive in Device Manager?

OK, you have:
C - hard drive
D - CD burner
Correct?

My Computer doesn't see D drive, right?
See, if it's listed in Device Manager.
Go Start>Run, and type in:
devmgmt.msc
Click OK.
See, if CD drive is listed there without any errors.

That's how computer work (not)...LOL

Try one of these:
1. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060
or...
2. Download, and run Restore Missing CD Drive patch
Double click on downloaded file, and allow registry merge.
or...
3. Go to Device Manager, click a "+" sign next to IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers.
You'll see two items:
- ATA Channel0 (or Primary Channel)
- ATA Channel1 (or Secondary Channel)
Right click on each of them, and click Uninstal. Confirm.
Restart Windows. They'll be automatically reinstalled.
