    Press the Windows key and the break key together, then find the Device Manager. Look under CDROM and see if your DVDRW has a yellow exclamation mark next to it.

    If it does then it is a driver or hardware problem, if it doesn't it's a software problem.

    The red x means it is disabled, try reinstalling its driver

    ahh, theres another problem there, umm i dont have the cd with the drivers on it. my uncle does, as i broke the pc a few weeks back and had to buy a new hard drive for it and he re-installed everything, so is there any other way i could get the driver rather than letting him know ive gone and f*cked up my computer again?

    The driver is probably available from the manufacturer's website.

    At the upper right of your keyboard:



    As for the E drive. Try uninstalling it and reboot. Perhaps Windows will reinstall it for you. If not then try Windows Update.
