It MIGHT just be a lose connector, if you eliminated that, read ahead.

CD burning software can muck up your Windows system registry, preventing Windows from accessing the CDROM drive. And once in a while, a system file (driver software) may be damaged, leaving the device in limbo. Hope this link helps
