    These drives use the in-box driver.


    You probably loaded a cd/dvd burning application (or non-Vista compatible) that installs a low level driver filter. After you rebooted the system, the ODDs disappeared. Try uninstalling these burning applications that did not come with your computer 1 by 1 + reboot (for each instance) to find out which application may be causing the issue.


    E.g. start out with uninstalling Memories Disc + reboot, iTunes + reboot, etc.
