My CDRW drive has been disabled. I tried to enable it through the device
manager however when I do this it says that windows cannot enable this drive.
Behind this message it has a Code 22 in brackets which I'm assuming is some
kinda of error code. If someone could please help me out with this it would
be greatly appreciated as I have been struggling with this for some time now.
I'm rather new at this whole computer bit so please help me out!

First, is the drive correctly identified in the BIOS when you start the
computer? You can go into the BIOS to check this or watch the boot screen
when you start the computer.
