Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I can Not open or play any CD's what so ever.
I need to be able to use this.
Can I do anything, (without needing to put a Disk in) to restore it?
How do I find out if it is defective or if I need a new one?
Since the drive is getting power (the drawer opens), it's either defective or has a bad data cable connection. Turn off the computer. Remove the cover from the computer (most eMachines cases have a slide-off side panel with a couple of thumbscrews holding it in place). Then make sure the data cable to the CD drive is firmly seated at both ends (the drive and the computer main board). Restart the computer. If Windows still doesn't see the drive you'll need to install a replacement.

Tips for a great answer:
It is the re-recordable version of the DVD+R
and everything that was said about the DVD+R is valid for the DVD+RW. Only the
newest DVD players play movies recorded in disks using this format. There are
recorders on the market that can record both DVD-RW disks and DVD+RW ones. These
recorders are called DVD?±RW. Similarly to the DVD-RW, the disk needs to be
finished to be played in commercial DVD players, and to record new data in the
disk after having finished it requires reformatting it, which makes all the data
in it to be erased. DVD+RW recorders are usually capable of reading DVD-RW disks
(but not of recording them) and vice-versa.
There you are.
