Windows 7: Dvd not readable in win 7

Dvd not readable in win 7

I used my sata dvd drive the other day to recover my vista install which had gone after Windows 7 installation, it failed to find it. Today i was trying bf2 in Windows 7 which failed so i uninstalled core and bf2 and went back to try and rescue my vista but found my disk is unrecogoniseable in explorer, only options on right click are format and eject . I went into my bios and set cd to boot and the first boot from cd line pops up but then it skips straight to booting Windows 7. The Windows 7 instalation is only a few days old so very little is installed. Drive shows up as cdrom in device manager but wont populate and no upper and lower filters are visible in regedit
