CD rom drive not recognised

I have an Acer CDRW drive attached to my PC.
It will usually play audio CDs but other wise the pc says that it has no CDrom drive attached.
However sometimes it shows on My Computer, other times it doesn't. When it doesn't I have tried running add new hatdware prog to see if it recognises it but no luck. Do I need a new CDrom or just new drivers?

If you are aufait with looking inside your PC i would look for loose connections first (shows on My Computer, other times it doesn't.)
