I have a cdrom (d) cdrw (e) and a dvdrw (f) and then my computer also thinks i have another drive (which i dont) that i named z, anyway, i had just finished installing photoshop and put in a cd to listen too, i click winamp and a grey box opened (i was starting to lag) so i clicked media player while i was waiting, it opened and said drive E was 'busy' so i took the disk out of E and put it into D, same happend, whole thing lagged and froze so i turned it off with the power button ( :eek: ) restarted and let the scandisk run, went to my computer and D and E werent listed :eek: went to install hardware and lots of other stuff and still no luck, i decided to do a system restore to just before i installed photoshop but to no avail :( i can still use disk in my dvdrw but im really annoyed ive 'lost' my other 2 drives, can anyone help? im using xp if thats of any relevance, thanks!

This happened to me before. I removed a CD when it seemed that windows was locked. It never worked again.....

Perhaps its a windows glitch? thanks for all the help everyone, its sorted now :) i just did what i had to always do to my modem - unplug it and take it apart.. putting the ribbons into the motherboard/drives in a different order fixed it :D
