hi. my cdrom drive in my winXP pro is not showing on my win-explorer. i did check it from device manager and it says that it functioning properly. i did try to unistall it (program) and even changed the cdrom itself with a the same cdrom and even changed the cable inside but still the cdrom drive is not showing. all it shows are my hd drives. the cdrom drive opens when i press the open/close button and it reads temporarily when i insert a cd but it doesn't show an extra drive in the win-explorer when i open it. what else can i do? i appreciate your help. thanks.
