    Okay, I don't have any idea why, but the dang thing is like it doesn't exist as far as my PC is concerned! I pop open the drawer, put in a CD (to download to iTunes), shut it, the little green light flashes, then . . . nothing. It doesn't show up under my computer or anything! It "used" to work! The PC is a pretty old HP, running XP, but hey, it's good enough for all I do at home. Any thoughts? Why does this happen? It's just like poof! it has disappeared from the radar!
