Remember to uninstall driver, remove filters, reboot, login and wait a few minutes.
If this doesn't work check internal cables to the drive and/or hope it's not a faulty drive or maybe disc.

check the IDE cable within your machine that
attaches to your drive and to your motherboard.
If this is loose or the cable is faulty, your
drive will still open and close etc since the
power cable is still running to it, but theres
no data being passed from it to the motherboard.
Look in Device Manager for information. Drive
listed as working? Any problem codes?
Easy fix for that.
Copy the following into a blank Notepad, save it
as FIXCD.REG, and then double click on the file
to merge it into the registry. Reboot the
computer and the drive should be back.
Or for those who fear the registry there's this.
hope this helps
