    That device sounds suspiciously like an emulated
    drive. I would try removing the driver, and switching
    to the standard Microsoft driver. That driver may have
    been installed by Roxio or Daemon Tools. The actual model
    number of your drive can be had, by removing the drive, from
    the system, and checking the label. The label might also
    list the manufacturer. If you can post a photo, I can probably
    help you figure out which firmware to use. Alternately, you may be
    able to get the drive info, from the BIOS setup screen (see SATA
    ports section), and/or a detailed device info tool, like CPUz or HWinfo.
    It is also possible that your drive has a hardware problem, that get's
    worse, when it warms up (could also be firmware related). To check this,
    you can try entering the bios setup, when the unit is cold, and when it
    has been on for a while. See if the drive is listed in the menus, in each
    case. If the drive "disappears" you know something other than OS drivers
    is at work.

    Good luck,

    Sir Robin

    try seeing if you can boot a disk via the bios or if the drive shows up in the boot options. if not, the drive may have died for some reason. you could try unplugging and plugging the drive back in also.also, check the bios to make sure you did not lock (disable) the drive in the bios options.

    Seconded. On that note, where did she go anyway? She just sorta dropped out of sight.
