    My DVD Drive (Which i used to burn DVDs or CDs or watch them) won't show up in device manager even though it is attached inside my computer.

    But sometimes when i restart my computer it either shows up or disappears.

    When it shows up it works fine for a while but then disappears.
    But when it doesn't show up, it won't show up at all.

    I think the DVD name is Matshita DVD RAM but i can't remember what model name was it.

    I looked for help elsewhere (Which is online chat) and they said maybe you have to replace it.

    So please help!!! :(

    Sounds like either the drive is dying or the fitting isn't tight to the motherboard. If you use them a lot, they really don't have a long life and Panasonic are amongst the worst IMHO.
