Why isn't my computer reconizing my DVD CD-RW, Floopy or ZIP?


After downloading an ME patch for my Iomega Zip drive, when I open My Computer, the

DVD, CD-RW, Floppy and Zip have all vanished. I cannot play CDs on the DVD drive (it doesn't auto play, and I can't open the drive to start it because it isn't listed). I was going to try system restore, but there are no set points to revert back to. What did I do wrong??

I would appreciated any help you could give me.
