Went to burn a CD This morning, and when I opened up my burning software, it stated that the burning drive was not available, and that no cd burner was found on the system. Took a look at "my computer" and it only shows the DVD Drive, but it doesnt show my other cd drive. Its strange to me because the door opens when you hit the button and the green light flickers so i know it has power, wont even read any cd's that i put in either, any ideas?

Make sure the wires securely attached.
Have you tried going into the Device Manager, uninstall the player, reboot, and see if windows will recognize it?
Go to the manufacturers website, and updated to the latest drivers for that drive.
