Device manager should not show services, but to re-enable devices in device manager just right click on the device and select enable

If the device has a yellow exclamation mark next to it, then something is wrong with the device. Right click on the device and select properties to find out more information about the device and what could be wrong with it

Thanks Tom for the response. My problem turned out to be a registry issue and it is now solved.

Open system and insure the DVD device is set a Master or slave depending on how you have it installed. (Windows 7 does not like CABLE SELECT).
Normally that will allow Windows 7 to see your DVD. If this does not work, use the manual install method.
Also insure the dvd device is shown in the bios.
Watch carefully on boot, and insure the boot sequence shows the dvd device.
I have found once in a while, since Win 95, totally removed the device, boot , normally. wait 3 min. shutdown, install device insuring the cable matches the proper selection on the device. (do not use cable select) either master or slave. boot an enjoy you DVD device. get more information..........
