Lost CD ROM, need help to find it

Guest

Since October this year I have been unable to use my CD ROM. It doesn't show
up in "my computer" although it is there in "device manager" and so are the
drivers.
Have had a look in the error log and there are two mentions:

1) CD Rom : The driver detected a controller error on
\Device\CdRom0.

2)PlugPlayManager : The device 'COMBI RW16x10/DVD'
(IDE\CdRomCOMBI_RW16x10/DVD___ ____________________N1.1____\5
635324f33324434305334333032202 020202020) disappeared from the system without
first being prepared for removal.

Has anyone got any suggestions as to how to resolve this problem. I would be
most grateful to anyone who can help.
