    I just bought a brand new HP 7975 with a CDRW and DVD Rom drive factory installed. THe problem is when I go into "my computer", sometimes the DVD Rom drive isn't there. Even if I hit refresh. I usually have to put in a DVD, then Restart the computer, then the Drive icon appears.

    This can't be normal. Any suggestion on how to have the drive appear every time ?

    Have you looked at the system properties for it? I have put in several drives and the options for disconnect & sync data transfer sometimes get checked. Unless it is a SCSI device they should be unchecked.
