Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario V6000T 15.4" Notebook PC Laptop ?

Disappearing DVD driver

\015 Please help me. I have a COMPAQ Presario V6000 laptop, running on Vista premium. Yesterday I attempted to burn an audio cd using windows media player and I was told to connect driver and restart??? Looking under device manager, I could see no record of my dvd/cd driver which is the Optiarc DVD RW AD-7561A ATA device. I am baffled as to how I have managed to burn cd's for the past 18 months which is the lenght of time I have owned this laptop and now it keeps running off. Any suggestions?? I am not brilliant with laptops so please keep jargon minimal. I have thought about re-installing the driver but am i able to do that when the laptop itself doesn't seem to know where it is??? Thankyou\015
