    I have a HP laptop running WIN7 Professional. Yesterday I remarked that the CD drive is not shown on the desktop. I open Disk Management, and either there the CD drive is not shown.
    The lonely action (change) I did was to remove and reinstall Nero.

    Thanks

    This sounds like the classic upper/lower filter problem.

    I do not know your level of skill but if you search for "optical drive" + "filter fix" you will find everything from automated fixes to step by step manual registry editing steps.

    I have seen this same problems many times, especially on Vista. Microsoft has a "FixIt" that makes some registry hacks and does, indeed, Fix It. :cautious:
