WEll if windows sees the drive but it won't read anything chances are that it's dirty or not working... You could also check the cable though....

Do you have two CD drives or have you had two in the past?

What exactly is the problem? Do you have a second drive which won't read the disk? Or is it asking for the drive that no longer exists?

Sometimes programs record the device that the program was loaded from and want to have the same device to get more information from, which can cause problems.

What I do is to assign the drives to a high letter so that it will stay the same, typically X and Y.

I take it that you don't have a drive to replace it with, correct? You could try removing it, but the program might still want the E: drive.

If you want a short term hack, you can change the drive letter on the non-working drive to something else, then change the working drive to E:

Go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management. In there go
to Disk Management.

You can right click on the drive and set the drive letter.
