cd & dvd drives dissapeared.

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.hardware (More info?)

Hi.

I have a dvd player & a cd burner fitted that have worked perfectly for ages.

Now when i boot up they seem to have gone ;o(

They dont show up in my computer..In properties it says ....A driver
(service) for this device has been disabled. An alternate driver may be
providing this functionality. (Code 32) ??? Anyone help ??

I have added no software or anything new ;o(

Thanks...
