    DVD drive

    Sometimes when I insert something in my USB port(slot) my DVD drive will disappear and I have to reboot the computer to get it back. Anybody got any ideas of what's going on, so weird.

    Is it possible you've allocated the USB drive the same drive letter as your DVD drive?

    (You can allocate a USB drive a drive letter in Disk Management- this is remembered for 1 drive per letter - very useful e.g. when connecting backup drives).

    Personally, I set my DVD drive as Z: when I first configure my system.

    No the drive letters are different. A bad driver maybe?
