sounds like the drive is not connected to the computer, check the leads into the computer inc power and sata/ide connections

I've done that already.they're good.
before w7 I was running w XP and my DVD RW worked. but since Ive updated my W7 it's not working anymore.
By the way it's shown in the device manager but with a yellow explanation mark!

What is the model of your DVD RW? Have you also tried removing the drive from the device manager to allow Windows 7 to go back and reinstall the hardware and attempt to find a driver?

or right click on the device manager and say update ddriver and allow windows seven to select a driver. This should help

it's Pioneer DVR-A18L.
I did it but it says "the best driver software for your device is already installed".
