    MMC (MultiMedia card) and SD (Secure Digital) are usually associated with a card reader, but you say you have installed no new hardware. In Device Manager, you should be able to spot this "new" piece of hardware that your computer thinks it has and uninstall it. Then reboot. Somehow your CD drive has been removed but Windows should detect it again upon reboot. You should get the "new hardware detected" message again. This time, follow it through and see what happens.
