Ive had this happen a few times but its happening more frequently now and it causes no end of problems when it does.
Basicly my cdrw drive which is a TDK will all of a sudden cease to work the tray wont open or close and the icon from "my computer" will disappear, it's as if it wasnt attachted to the system, i can even open the tray sometimes then it will die, which is then when i have to reboot in order for it to work again.
Ive no idea why it does this but would realy like some info on what i can do to sort it out.

The most likely reason is loose or misaligned cables or power lead.
