Is this a newly installed drive? If not, was your machine showing the drive before but not anymore? If so, did you recently install anything or update a driver? How old is the drive?

In all honesty, you may have a bad drive. Try unconnecting the drive inside the machine and give everything a good dusting, then firmly reattach all cables and boot the machine back up. Worst case scenario, you might have to fork out $30-50 for a new drive.
I swear, troubleshooting is a science: the best discoveries are always on accident...

Check whether you CD-ROM is under the read-write protection. If so, you can release it from the situation.  Or you can connect the CD-ROM to another computer to see if it can be recognized or not. Maybe you can download a hard drive manager such as AOMEI Partition Assistant to see if it is on your computer without drive letter.
