Windows 7: Dell E5500 DVD-CD Drive: Comes and Goes?!

Dell E5500 DVD-CD Drive: Comes and Goes?!

Whats up guys!

Well, I just made the switch to Windows 7 (x64) on my Dell E5500 Laptop. Love it. Well, I'd love it even more if I could get my DVD-CD drive to work properly...

Before I made the switch, everything was working fine ( I could burn CD/DVDs no problem. ) Now, it will read a disc when I put it in, but if I try to burn to it I get an error saying no CD-DVD Drive Detected .

I've un-installed and re-installed the hardware, tried updating the driver ( it's up to date ) all with no luck. I noticed something weird to... If I open up my Device Manager nothing shows up for the drive, when I put a blank DVD in it shows up on the list! But after a few seconds it will vanish, and then come back, and then vanish again.

I don't have any icons next to it in Device Manager either when it's showing up. Any ideas?

Thanks guys!
