what i want to set is E dvd writer as default drive
there is no e drive in the drop down menu i have to manually change/ type it to E drive
please can anyone advise how i would do this?

I think this is a bios issue - hit del or whatever key is listed when your pc first boots. Then click on the automatic detect ide devices and see if it detects the dvd drive.

will it be bios?
dvds start from dvd drive in power dvd / wmp11 and jet audio and if not autoplay the drive is available when selecting play
in vlc the drive is D when playing disc and E is not in the drop down i have to type it
hope that makes sense?

icant seem to find the solution but by clicking on my computer, dvd drive ,properties ive set vlc to autoplay dvd movies,which is what i wanted ,so my 7 year old daughter can pop a dvd in and watch without typing in the drive letter.
Thus getting the benefits of improved dvd playback/codecs that my other players have been giving me

Set the jumper on the DVD writer as the Master and jumper the CD writer as the Slave.

Uninstall both in Device Manager and then reboot.
