    Trying to burn or play cd's in windows media player or any other program for that matter, the E- drive player/burner has quit recognizing any cd that is put in. Will play a cd in the D drive. Any ideas or solutions?

    You can try to run "Microsoft's Fix-It" program to automaticly remove the Drive's Upper and Lower filters. Or you can Manually delete them using these directions from MS's site.

    If that doesn't work, try uninstalling the drive from Device Manager and rebooting. Beyond that, it might just be time for a new drive.
