    The tray of my CDRW automatically opens when Windows loads and the drive is not showing in Device Manager.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    reinstallation of the drivers.

    these can generally be found either on the cd/floppy that came with the drive, or from the manufactorers web page.

    if that doesnt work, then make sure it is properly plugged in. obviously it has power.

    You could also try going to the control panel\add new hardware & see if xp picks it up.
