My cdr drive and dvdrw drive disappeared from My Computer. I cant use my drives. I checked the systems device and it shows a yellow exclamation point. It said that my drivers are missing or corrupted. I deleted them and rebooted XP. It is still the same. I even uplugged my drives from the computer and than rebooted. Than I plugged them back in, than rebooted. They still are gone from My Computer and they still show a yellow !. I think i need some new drivers but cant load the disk because they don't work. I cant find any from the internet. I have windows XP home, my computer is a emachine T3414. The driver are lite-on combo SOHC-4836V and lite-on DVDRW SHW-160P6S. What would cause them to disappear from MY Computer

I'd suggest you run a file check... goto start/run and type in "sfc /scannow" without the quotes... have your XP cd-rom handy too.
