    I just tried to put a DVD-RW in a E-Machine T3990 and it does not show up in the profiles..

    We also have the jumpers set in the proper places..

    Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    Be sure you have its connection turned on in the BIOS.

    Does it show in POST.

    Also, check Disk Management. Here's how: Click Start> Control Panel> Administrative Tools> Computer Management> Disk Management.

    If not, try the device in another system. If it doesn't show there, you may have a bad drive.
