DVD drive in Device Manager but not in My Computer

Hello. Have an Acer Aspire 5250-0468 laptop. Had Windows 7 and now Windows 8 installed. My DVD/CD RW doesn't usually work. I put a CD or DVD in and can hear it working but then it will stop spinning and sometimes wont even eject. I have done the latest BIOS update(s) as well as looking for the driver from Acer. Windows shows the DVD/CD ROM in the device manager. However, the DVD/CD ROM doesn't appear under the Computer.

Ideas?

Thanks!
