Dear dity2325

Right then, this depends on how you mean by the E:\ (CD/DVD) drive was removed. If it was removed physically, and the drive is actually taken out of the laptop then installing it is easy enough. All you need to do is locate the drive the correct way round, and then push it home into the open slot until it locks into place. Then you are pretty much done.

You may have to go into the BIOS/ CMOS settings and make sure that the drive is recognised in the system, if not then there is a way to get the drive to be recognised, but it will mean that you have to scan for hardware changes within the CMOS/ BIOS and then once the drive is detected, you save settings and exit, then you are done.

If the problem is within the windows or other similar operating systme, then you are going to have to format your hard drive, and re-install your operatingg system, and see if windows then picks up the drive again. If it does not, then it will be a lot easier to just discard the old optical drive, and buy a new one as they are somewhat cheaper now than they were a few years ago. If you do decide to service the unit yourself, then i cn provide you with technical assistance on this too, but i will need to know a lot more details about your computer system in order for me to help you.

Well i do look forward to hearing what you have to comment or ask with regards to this matter, and i will reply to you as soon as possible with more information should you need it.

In the meantime I hope that this is the fixya for you, and also wish this matter to be resolved with this information provided.

hope to hear from you soon, and take care.

yours sincerely

Check the Drives Device drivers are not Corrupt Or Missing.
Also uninstall then re-install your CD/DVD Writing Software.

Failing this, The drive Should be replaced, as suspected Faulty.

Sounds like you need to install a DVD decoder, Roxio, WinDVD and PowerDVD are good decoders.

HP DVD 740e wont burn Dual Layers anymore!

Try re-installing the software associated with the burner, so it installs the necessary drivers and files needed for the burner to work according to your needs.

Also check the connections and cables... sometimes moving it around causes the cables to loose some contacts.

Hope this helps...
