    I have a Gateway Laptop 400SD4, with Operating system Windows XP Home Edition, 32 bit, SP3.
    My CD drive does not appear in My Computer anymore. I know there is a way to re-activate the icon so I can use the CDR/DVD player, but I do not know the specifics in how to get into the Registry to correct this problem.
    Could someone please give me the specific instructions in how to get Windows XP to again, correctly display th CDr Icon in "My Computer"
