    This has really got me, I am running a W2000 Pc which is not and never has
    been connected to the Internet.Like wise I have not installed any new
    software.Last night I went to play a CD and precisely nothing happened.
    Subsequently I went to My Computer and neither of my CD drives are even
    listed..However my girlfriend has used the PC on her own but she says she has
    not done anything that might cause this and even if she has I can't find it!!
    Any help in finding the missing drives much appreciated. TIA Arfer.

    Faulty PSU, cabling, IDE channel gone south,

    Get the case open and unplug and reseat all connections.

    Another cause is changing CD burning software from Adaptec/Roxio to Nero.
