When in ''MY COMPUTER'' - CD Drive (E:) was droped into DVD-RW (D:

Had ''MY COMPUTER'' open and the CD Drive (E:) was accidently dropped into the DVD-RW Drive (D:) As a result of this mistake DVD-RW Drive will not recognize or write files to DVD-R or DVD-RW disks. It will write files to CD and is recognizing the (D)Drive as a CD Drive. I believe hardware for DVD-RW drive is: Lite-on DVDRW SOHW-8325 and CD Drive (E) hardware is CD-ROM GCR-8483B Did troubleshooting to no avail. Had Windows search for drive to no avail. When checking DVD-RW Properties it reads: Drive D
Type: CD Drive
Location: 0 (0)

What steps to I have to take to undo changes made when CD Drive was dropped into DVD Drive on My Computer? Hope you can help me solve this problem.

Thanks

Try uninstalling the drivers in device manager, shut down, reboot and Windows should find both devices, it might ask for your windows disk to install drivers or search online to install them

It doesnt read any dvd neither software nor video, but can read audio cds, vcds, and mp3s


Put a DVD disk into the drive.
Open "My Computer".
Right-mouse click on the icon for the CD/DVD drive.
Click "Explore".
If a window opens, then your hardware can read the DVD media.
If not, then you need to replace the CD/DVD drive.

Then, you need software, such as the _free_ 'VLC' software,
downloadable from the Internet, to play DVD-videos on your computer.

Driver not showing on my computer


Try the following tips;

Install the driver on device manager, if you have accidently uninstalled it.

Can you see the DVD +/- RW on “Disk Management” If yes it should accidently the partition should have been deleted? Please partition it with a volume label (DVD +/- RW) normally drive D.

Or Try a system restore to a previous date when the computer was working fine. Please backup all your current DATA as you may lose them.
