Al,

Assuming that you rebooted at least once during the lifetime of the computer, you tell us that the CD-burner is visible. Yet you tell us the CD-burner isn't visible. Somehow, it seems to disappear, but you don't tell when exactly.

And what does "doesnot see" exactly mean?
- In My Computer?
- In Windows Explorer?
- In Device Manager?
- In burning program?
