Windows 7: SATA DVD RW Drive Disappear Ocassionally Until Reboot

SATA DVD RW Drive Disappear Ocassionally Until Reboot

Hi All,

I have a SATA DVD RW Drive. The drive would appear when I boot my computer and I can use it with no problem.

Occasionally...,especially when I leave my computer overnight, my DVD RW would disappear. I couldn't locate it from "My Computer" or "Device Manager". However when I reboot my computer the drive would appear again.

Have anyone experiencing this before?

Thanks

Sometimes Fix problems with CD or DVD drives does the trick, as well.
