Missing Hardware

  surfrider 06:22 19 May 04

Have recently installed some video editing software. Now the computer can't see the cd-writer or the DVD drive. In device manager the drivers are still present and enabled but it's almost as if the hardware has been 'unplugged'.
System restore did not correct the problem. I would be grateful for any advice on how to get the hardware working again.

Some dv editors can be a bit intrusive with devices. I'd do a clean uninstall of software (even in registry) and see if that clears it. Which editor is it?
