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

My dvd burner doesn't burn dvds

You need to check that with blank DVD's you are using compatible with your drive.Because the DVD's may work with your extranal drive but not with your builting drive. If this doen't slove the problem I would recommend using a different burning software other than "sonic record now" and "vista o/s Built-in dvd burner".

Cd/Dvd burner stopped working on my laptop

It could be that the burner has gone out in the drive, this is a common problem. Before you go and replace the drive, it could just be a simple driver glitch, try uninstalling the drivers for the CD drive from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the drive and reinstall the drivers. If this doesn't work then you can replace the drive.

This could be a glitch with your burning software. Try removing and reinstalling it, or using a different software. The other possibility is the drive, occassionally with a CD/DVD combo drive the DVD reader or burner will fail, leaving the CD end working.

DVD / CD - RW Combo

When you say you cannot burn DVD's, do you mean you cannot burn DVD movies or do you mean you cannot burn data files to a DVD?

Burning DVD movies requires specific software to transcode the video and create a directory structure that DVD's players expect.

When you try to burn DVD's does it produce an error? What software are you using to burn?
