What OS?

Look in "Device Manager" to see what is has to say. In XP, it should be listed under "DVD/CD-ROM Drives".

DVD+RW not working?

Windows XP home edition is the operating system.

Checked Device manager and DVD/CD-rom drive is not showing up anywhere?
Could it be the hardware for my dvd/cd-rom drive is the problem?
Power is still going to the drive and it opens and close like normal?
Please advise...

Thank you

Complete System restore will recover the drives to original. It worked for me
