Is the E: drive your hard drive, or your CD drive? If the latter, will it read another CD when you insert it in the tray? Can you see the contents of the CD when you put it in the tray?
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

It's the cd drive and usually it reads most cds but the one i am trying to copy to hard drive is my mini dvd-rw from my camcorder. And no when i put this cd in i can't see the contents at all.

I believe to copy the video to your hard drive you can connect your camera using a firewire cable. And is your E:/ drive a DVD rom? If its a CDROM it won't read DVD's. One more thought is the disc closed or still open, Not sure if this matters on a PC but in a DVD player if its not closed it can't be played.

Edit: what type of camera is it, mabe we can help you connect it if you haven't done so already
