This one is really common… If you use USB storage devices regularly, you might find your cd-rom missing. I’ve seen it being suggested that this is caused by one of the USB devices taking/using your cd-rom’s drive letter. Regardless of the cause, your symptoms will be that you open “my computer” and you dont see a cd drive. A quick registry fix & reboot will usually restore the drive.

You can download the file, cdgone.reg, from here. The contents of cdgone.reg are below.
