(I misspell 'cause I LOVE.)

Okay, so, here I am enjoying the computer games and the online activities and such, and suddenly my PC freezes dead. No error message, nuttin'.

I shutdown and restart, do some poking around, and discover that according to my PC's mighty technological brain (and in spite of evidence to the contrary) I no longer have a CD or DVD-ROM drive.

So I do the obvious things, crack open the case, make sure they're connected and getting power and whatnot... nuttin'. When I power back up, they work for, say, an hour, and then the Disk Drive Fairy comes and takes 'em away again.

My question to all you considerably more computer-literate Wieners out there is this: Does this sound like a software problem, a hardware problem, or what? I'm at a loss, here, what with the complete lack of any error messages or signs of trouble (aside, of course, from the freezing and mysterious disappearances of my optical media).

It was bound to happen sooner or later

My network card was doing that for like a month. I kept having to pop in the drivers CD and reinstall (and reboot) it like 7-8 times in a row before my computer would decide to recognize it again.

I ended up replacing it and it's all good since.

Sounds like your IDE cable to me. If you have an extra one, try replacing it. Same thing happened to me a few months ago.

Well Midway Airlines (local to North Carolina and the East Coast) went out of business last night. They are discontinuing their Boeing 747 service, and the majority of their employees are going to be "generally unemployed".
