My CD drive isn't showing on my computer?

I went to play a game and stuck the cd in the drive, clicked on the game and it said to please insert the cd. I clicked on "my computer" and where it usually shows my cd drive and dvd drive, and the cd drive icon is gone. Any body know what the deal might be with this?

maybe just a guess here.. but sounds like you run Windows XP and have an LG cdrom drive... if so there is a registry hack that needs to be made.. but you need to do some googling it is out there but will take some searching.
