i have another computer but i dont eve use it... the weird part is ive tried 3 drives... including the one that used to work and none of the 3 work. All have the same problem and none show up in my computer.
One of the first things to suspect is the chipset drivers. I don't see any information in your possts about the make and model of machine, or how old it is. Newer machnes will pick the drives up right away, older not. Also reinstalling the OS may lose the drivers.

nothing in the computer is over a year old and i cant reinstall the OS anyways cuz i dont have a drive to read the disc. I could try to redownload chipset drivers from asus site i guess

Humor me for a moment and try this, even if you already have. Get to your device manager and delete the drive for your cd-rom. then reboot your system, plug-n-play should dectect the cd-rom and re-install the driver. After reboot and once windows reinstalls the cd-rom, go back into device manager, check to see if you still have the yellow icon by the cd-rom. If so, right click on the device > go to properties, under "Device Status there should be a message, maybe an error message, please post that message here.

Start Registry Editor (Start, Run and type in regedit then click)
Find "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" (and "UpperFilters.bak" "LowerFilters.bak", if they exist) value under the following key in the registry, and delete it:
Quit Registry Editor.
NOTE: You might need to reinstall any CD recording apps you have, if they start to not work completely, after doing this.
