    I had a DVD burner on my E drive. A couple of weeks ago, it showed up on the E drive as "CD drive" and would no longer read or burn DVDs; it would, however, read CDS. I tried restoring to an earlier date, but nothing worked. I desperately needed to back up some documents from my computer. Right clicked on the E drive and clicked on Recording tab in my properties. Then checked box to "enable CD recording on this drive" and it did burn a CD. Where did my DVD burner go --how can I get it back. I am not very sophisticated in doing anything to registries so am very leary of trying that. Any suggestions -- would appreciate all the help I can get. THANKS!
