Going to bed i'll check back tomorrow. I've done the same thing before. Just check really good in control panel. You can even change the list view, it sometimes helps me find stuff I'd otherwise overlook.

UNDER the Devices and Printers heading, you'll see Device Manager on the right.

Click that, then look under the DVD/CD-Rom drive section (hit the plus sign).

Right click your drive and enable it.
