  1. If you tell Windows to detect any new hardware from the device manager, does the drive re-appear? Have you checked the cable to the DVD drive inside the system? It may have come loose...
  2. I've tried to detect it using Windows and it sometimes re-appears but then again it does it all on it's own every now and then and no I haven't opened it up to see if the cable is loose... maybe I'll try doing that next, will let you know what happens...
