SOURCE: dvd-rw not detected
Go into your device manager and see if your dvd player is listed. Double click on it to see if it says if it is working properly. If not listed, go to the very top and right and it should say scan for hardware changes. Click on that. If your pc finds it then everything should be ok. If not, reboot and hit F8 to boot into safe mode. Do a system restore and you should be fine.
