Try re-seating the cable/connector on the drive/motherboard.
If it still does not show up in My Computer then the DVD drive most like is faulty and needs to be replaced.

My wife was trying to remove unwanted programs. Now the DVD player does not work. In the my computer icon, the DVD icon is not there. What can be done to repair this?


That icon is present whenever the _hardware_ is connected to your computer. So, removing "software" should _NOT_ have removed that icon.

Right-mouse-click on My Computer.]
Click Properties.
Click Hardware.
Click Device Manager.
Expand the 'DVD/CD-ROM' branch of the tree.
Your DVD-drive should be listed.
If not, shutdown your computer, and open the case.
Check that the "power" and "data" cables from the computer to the DVD--drive are connected.
If they are, it's possible that the drive itself has "failed", independent of the "clicking" done by your spouse.

Connecting to my E:\ drive


Hi fantisy, It's not uncommon for your DVD player to not have the drive letter you were expecting it to have. Let me show you. Place a CD or DVD in to your cdrom drive, close the drawl. Close any windows that may open Ok here we go. Right click once on the Start button, than slide up to & left click on Explorer. Take a look at the icons. Left click once on the - sign to the left of C:
The icon you see to the left of C: is a hard drive. Look down to your DVD drive, see the differance in the icon, (a cd on top of a hard drive icon). Your E-Machine also has a SD card reader. Each card slot also shows a hard drive icon. So drive D: is your DVD player & F, G, H & I are SD card reader drives. Windows just skipped letter E.
You can re-assign your drive letters through windows Computer Management. Type Computer Management in your help window. Under Overviews, Articles and Tutorials, is Using Computer Management. Clcik on it.In the right half of help click,
Open Computer Management (Local).
Once opened click Disk Management. Here is where you can re-assign drive letters.

( DO NOT ) change C: drive letter assignment.

Enjoy!
