Hi,

Download CDgone from the link below:
http://www.aumha.org/downloads/cdgone.zip
Right click on the downloaded file and choose Extract All, then double-click on cdgone.reg Say "Yes" to the merge question and then reboot. See if the drives have returned. You may have to re-install CD burning applications, since they're the ones that tinker with the filter setting in the registry that caused the drives to disappear.

Good Luck!
If you don't know where you go, get back where you come.......
