The problem just started about two weeks ago. First a little information on my PC.
-I built it from scratch and installed Win XP Pro successfully about six months ago.
-Processor - 3.0 P4 HT
-Ram - 1 Gig (2X512) Dual Channeled
-HD - 80 Gig
Now the problem is that when I go to "My Computer"(Windows Explorer) I don't see my DVD-R nor my DVD-ROM Drives. The strange thing is that the Bios and the Device Manager recognizes them. In the Device Manager it shows the icon with the exclamation(!) on it. I go to the Properties screen and it tells me to something like "The device Driver was successfully installed, but the device could not be found." I switched out the IDE wire of the DVD-R and DVD-ROM Drives and its still the same story.
Note: The only thing that I've done recently was switched out my hard drive for another and ran a utility on a floppy that wiped out the second hard drive. Then I switched back to my hard drive. After that the problem started to occur, but I'm not sure if it happened right after or not.
If you need any more information just let me know. Thanks!
