DVD Drive Appears and Disappears, Tried Many Fixes
Hi,

I would very much appreciate some help. I've been working for a week applying fixes to no avail. I have an HP compaq and the DVD drive (TSST TS-L632H) disappears for no apparent reason. I did a system recovery, which reinstalled original factory software and settings. The drive reappeared right after system recovery, but now it randomly appears and disappears. Microsoft Fix It does not fix it. There are no upper or lower filters in registry. Device Manager does not show it. I have Vista home premium. Sometimes I boot up, and there it is. However, later it disappears.

Once I opened My Computer after restarting. I watched as the drive was present, and then as the green loading bar was moving to completion across the top of My Computer, I saw the drive disappear. I have tried taking out the drive and putting it back in, doesn't help. If I do system restore to a time when the drive was present, after the restore it still isn't present. I am wondering if Windows DVD Maker is causing some conflict. I can't find any other DVD burning software, besides that. I can't uninstall DVD Maker because it is part of OS. Any ideas?? Please help!

God bless you,
J.
