Missing CD-ROM drives

My PC has decided to erase the drivers for my DVD drive and CD rewriter. I can only start in safe mode and can find no way past the grey screen with Safe Mode in each corner. As I have a large amount of important data on my pc I would really like to avoid a reinstall.

Please help........

What operating system?

It is possible to run an install over the current install without any loss of data if you have the OS CD.

In safe mode, run defrag and scandisk.

Try also

start

run

sfc

(if that works in safe mode).
