Go to this link. http://www.aumha.org/win5/a/xpcd.htm
Scroll to the section
8. PROBLEMS
“My CD drives have vanished (from Explorer, Device Manager, etc.)â€

There is a link to a small download utility - cdgone.zip - that often times
helps. It does the same thing as manually changing the registry documented
in the previous post. This one is automated.
