I burned a back-up onto a DVD-R disk. I was able to view that the burn was
successful right after. But now, months later, when I put the DVD into the
same drive, I get the error message:
E:\ is not accessible
And it says it's because there is an I/O device error.

This drive continues read CD's with no problems. The device is enabled. It
is a DVD/CD drive. This is the same drive I burned the disc on. I'm using
Win2000 server and have checked and there are no updates for my driver.

I have a feeling it's a problem with the DVD disc itself, but I can see that
it has something burned on it, and like I said, I've viewed the contents on
it before.

Any ideas??!!!

A little update, the disc does work in another computer so the disc is not
the problem....

If the disc is readable in another drive then the DVD part of your drive
is not working correctly.

Hmmm....so what should I do? Reinstall the drive? Also, do you have an idea
as to why that would happen? Just because it was working a few month ago.

The CD and the DVD use different lasers, if the one for the DVD died,
it's dead. You may attempt a reinstallation if you wish as it won't hurt
the DVD if it is broken. Remove it in device manager and then scan for
hardware.
