    Howdy,

    Have you changed on that PC lately?

    I assume it is a different PC than what is in your profile

    understood...

    and when you go to Computer you see your Hard drive but not the DVD drive icon?

    Try this

    Download CDgone to your desktop.

    Right click and choose Extract All,
    open folder and double click on cdgone.reg

    Do Not Click on EditReg.reg

    Restart your PC
