My cdrw is gone

Man i’m haveing bad luck these days. This morning i turned on my computer and the plextor 8/4/32 was found when booting but it will not show under windows xp. Does anyone have any ideas on how i can figure out whats going on? Is it time to format the old hardrive again? Hmm it looks as if my brother put sisoft sandra on the computer yesterday. Maybe this has something to do with it? Thanks for the help

sorry about that. After rebooting a second time it seems to have fixed itself. Weird but its fine with me

once it happened to me too, but i was under win2k, not xp… anyway i agree: definitely weird…
