Hi, I have a problem where my CD/DVD drive does not appear in Windows Explorer. It is a NEC 3550A drive. I am able to open it and close it, but whenever I insert a CD or DVD inside it, nothing happens. I tried installing a driver for it (1.06) but all I get is a message "Target is not found." or something like that. In addition, whenever I connect my external hard drive to my computer, Windows realizes that there is hardware connected (Safely Remove Hardware - USB Mass Storage Device), but there is no AutoPlay and no drives appear in Windows Explorer. It seems as if my computer cannot recognize any drives other than my two hard disk drives. These problems just started happening recently and I finally decided to ask about it. Any help please? I'd greatly appreciate it!
BTW: PC Details - Dell Dimension 4600, 2x512MB Memory Sticks, 120GB Hard Drive, 60 GB Hard Drive, NEC 3550A CD/DVD drive, yeah.
