Hi moose,
\015\012
\015\012Go to Start>Control Panel>System>Hardware tab>Device manager. Click the + by DVD/CD-rom drives, see if your CDrom is listed. If it is, right click on it, and select Uninstall.
\015\012Reboot, and WIndows should find it, and reload it. If it doesn't show up, good chance your CDrom is dead.
