I have a recurring problem where my disk drive keeps vanishing from my system until i restart. for example: I was burning cd,s and all going fine, until i closed my media player, then put a game disk in and it wasnt coming up, when i clicked on 'my computer', there was no cd drive listed! this is a problem which happens under various circumstances, not just when i try to play game disks or burn cd's. When i restart my system the drive is always back when i reboot. I put up with it for a while, but its getting annoying now, especially as i cant seem to suss out whats causing it! Does anyone know anything about this problem? Its not a serious one i dont think, more inconvienient than anything else, going thru converting and stuff for ages then having to reboot before i can burn cd or dvd's. Also, it doesnt happen all the time, just about maybe 5 times out of ten. Very strange!
