My drives are missing. Gone from device manager and nowhere to be found in My computer.

The drives are installed correctly to the power supply and the like. The drive operate in the way the door will open and try an read the CDs (Cd's, DVD's, blank and full and even real dvds), but would ultimately fail. These drive are not new and are local to the machine, I took them out and they worked in another PC.

Reinstalling them several times have yet to work and I'm afraid to do it anymore. Upon reinstall i did notice however that my DVDplayer is recognized by my BIOS. The name of the drive is "LITE-ON COMBO SOHC-5(thats all it gives me)."

Here is the reason why I think my drives are gone. I installed Daemon tools (it ate up my E: drive). That was the latest thing I did, So I uninstalled it, did all of the above and still no luck. I tried this Microsoft Fix it or something and that didnt work. Then I tried it again later and it says its not compatible with my version of windows, I know it worked though, because itunes sayed i need to reinstall. And people toled me to delete some upper and lowers stuff? I didn't find them. I guess that fix it got rid of it.

Anyway I am stumped on what to do.

One of the last things I said were those upper and lower keys were already gone. I suspect microsoft fix it of doing that for me.

I did it, I got it fixed. The problem was one drive was CS and the other was master. Changing those fixed my problem. Thats for all you help.
