DVD-ROM disappeared

Thanks tommy red. My dell with XP O/S stopped allowing dvd's and cd's to be played it appeared that the machine was reading them slowly but no action and would not eject! the event viewer gave me this " the device disappeared from the system without first being prepared for removal" it was classed as eventID12 from the plug and play source any-one with similar please advise

In the meantime, try a reboot - then look in the device manager to see if it is there. Check also in the BIOS at startup to see if it is recognised.
