Hello buzzradio,

Does your DVD/CD Drive show up in Start > My Computer?

One of these steps may help.

Uninstall the drive through Device Manager.
Start > (right-click)My Computer > Properties > (in the Hardware tab for XP users, or on the top left for Vista/7) Device Manager
Uninstall the drive.
Restart your computer. The drive will be automatically reinstalled.

Follow instructions here: LINK
Be sure to follow steps for YOUR operating system only. Also try the Fix it for me tip.
Restart your computer.

Download, and run Restore Missing CD Drive patch
Double-click on cdgone.zip to unzip it.
Right-click on cdgone.reg, click Merge.
Accept registry merge.
Restart your computer.

Go to Device Manager again, click the "+" 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 Uninstall. Confirm.
Restart your computer. They'll be automatically reinstalled.

Kudos to Broni for the instructions
