    Alright, a couple of possible solutions here.

    Can you try this program? It is portable and it is designed for Windows 7, but it works perfectly fine in Windows 8:
    Download CD-DVD Icon Repair 0.2.2.288 Free - Repair missing CD or DVD drive from Windows or other programs. - Softpedia

    If not, I may have another one.
