Hello bleepingcomputer.com community! Im having a strange problem with my DVD/CD drive. I have a "Optiarc DVD RW AD-7530A ATA Device", and every time i enter a CD/DVD into the disc drive, it comes up with error message "Please insert a cd into drive E:". (Drive E: is my CD/DVD Drive). Im 100% sure that its not reading any of the dics, I dont know what the problem, is, but im hoping you can figure it out!. Ive attatched my DirectX log, so that you can see my System Specifications.

Thanks,

~StickDude101

When you open My Computer, does the CD drive show?
