    Sounds a lot like this problem. CD Drives Disappear

    I'd check the registry and see if you can nuke the filters mentioned in this KB article, it's fixed several of these problems for me on a couple of machines.

    FWIW, I don't think this is a virus, just a problem with the registry entries for the CD drives.
