CD/DVD drive no longer shows up

Microsoft installed some Windows 7 updates recenly and now my CD/DVD drive isn't listed as a Drive in the " Computer" window. I can play and burn cd's but it doesn't list it as a drive until I insert media. I'm on a HP laptop runing WINDOWS 7 64BIT .
Any Suggestions?
