Optical Drive MIA

I just turned my machine on and went to install a new program and nothing happened (auto-load didn't kick in). Checked my Windows Explorer and both of my DVD drives are not listed. So, I rebooted and still the same thing. I went into device manager and the Optical Drives are shown but with the "!" Yield symbol.

Help! Need to install this program ASAP for work...

Optical Drive Cleaning
Thinking about the fact that I had not cleaned my optical drives in a very long time, I used one of those disks with a couple of brushes attached, to clean my DVD drives. I can't be certain, but I think that it improved the read speed while encoding some video by 3-5 fps, and perhaps stabilized...

Win 7 HP....Optical Drive not being detected...
Hi all, My friend has an HP Pavilion DV6 Entertainment Notebook with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit installed. It's only about 3 months old. I rebuilt the unit with a fresh copy of Win 7 HP 64bit as I did not want all the bloat-ware that came with the machine. The issue is that the unit is unable...
