Why has my CDRW drive disappeared once Clone cd is installed

Why has my CDRW drive disappeared once Clone cd is installed. I’m running windows XP, i’ve taken the drive out and rebooted the pc without it on then reinstalled it an turned the pc on hopeing that it will recognize the drive but no luck. I’ve even try setting it as a master and my other cdrom as a slave still no luck. How can i get it to recognize it?

To rule out that this a real hardware problem, could you please check if the BIOS detects your CDRW drive?
