My computer decided to stop recognizing my CD and DVD drives.What seems to be the problem?

Question

My computer is 2 yrs. old, everything was working up to par. The other day my computer decided to stop recognizing my CD and DVD drives. The DVD has power but the CD does not.

Now normally, I would just think I need a new CD. But my computer doesn't even show that they exist.

When I go to computer properties, it says that everything is working okay. But everywhere else (including Windows Explorer) it shows that there is NOT any other drives but the (C) and (A) drive.

Got any suggestions?

Thank you
