For some unknown reason my DVD-RW drive is now invisible in My Computer, and the Device Manager tells me that the drivers are either corrupted or damaged. I have searched for about the last 30 minutes looking for the drivers I need, but I can't frickin' find 'em! lol Here are my specs:

DVD-RW Details:
_NEC DVD+RW ND-2100AD (As shown in the Device Manager)

O/S:
Windows XP Professional SP1

Everything was fine all day. I go out, come back, and the frickin' thing is all messed up! So, does anyone know where to find these drivers and what might have caused the problem to begin with?

Thanks a whole load :)

P.S Is this in the right section? I'm a little dim...

I found an article on Micro$oft's website which fixed my problem. It has nothing to do with my divers, as the Device Manager led me to believe, it is a couple of registry keys which are bad little boys! Here is the article, for those of you having similar troubles:
