Cd/dvd uninstaled when upgrading to windows7 now can`t use cd/dvd rom how do i get it back ?

go to control panel, system, hardware manager(or whatever windows 7's version of that is) and see if the dvd drive is even listed. My guess is you'll need to go to computer makers site(no ref to computer here) and get the updated utility download.

Dell Dimension E510- Trouble Reading DVD/DVD-Rom

open the pc and check the IDE cable and power cable for this drive if you only have 1 drive then the jumper should be on master . CD-rom drive and DVD-rom drive should connect to master on the jumper, CD-RW and DVD-RW should connect to slave on the jumper that if you have 2 drives on your pc. If you still have problem after you checked all these cable and jumper connection than problem maybe inside the drive check it open the drive to see if there is nothing stuck inside the drive and clean the laser light.

My cd/dvd rom no longer reads or burns

The laser that reads (or "burns") has failed.
Spend $30 to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

If you haven't tried reinstalling the drive, this may help:
- Open the Control Panel - Open the System folder - Click on Hardware - Click on Device Manager
Locate the DVD-CD-ROM entry and expand it. Highlight your optical drive and press 'Delete'
If it argues with you, answer 'Yes' to the question of deleting the drive(s)
Reboot your computer and watch for a message box reading that a 'New Device' was found and software for it is being installed.
If it still doesn't want to cooperate, then the drive is probably 'toast' and will need to be replaced.

My solution would be to do a system restore but to restore your pc to before the problem occured. This helps with certain driver problems sometimes.
