Drivers.

Hi,
My problem: PC doesn't detect the CD and DVD-rom Drives. Up to a
month ago they worked just fine. I scratch my head as to what I've done to make this happen.

PC: Dell 2350. Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition.
Version 2002. Service Pack 2. Computer Intel(R). Pentium (R).
4CPU 2.00 GHz. 1.99 GHz 768MB of Ram.
CD Drive: HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8481B.
DVD-Rom Drive: HL-DT-ST DVD Ram GSA-4167B.

I have Registry Mechanic installed which scans on a dayly basis.

Appreciate your help, yours, Jack.
