Welcome to G2G

Does the cd open and close?

Go to start run and type devmgmt.msc Now in the dvd/cdrom drives is it recognized? is there a symbol next to it?

What did you do before it disappeared?

Hi Vally,

I kind of have the same problem. My dvd/cd rom drive is recognized, there is a cd symbol next to it in device manager, and it opens and closes. However, when I try to backup word, and other files on the computer it doesn't recognize the drive saying the selected drive is not in use, or something like that. Also when I try to copy music from my media player to a cd it doesn't do it. It keeps saying no device detected press F5 to refresh, when that is done nothing happens. Please help

Hello Essy...

Click Start, then Run, type regedit and click "Ok"

In the left pane, expand (click +) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then SYSTEM, then CurrentControlSet, then Control, then Class, and click on {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

In the right pane, are UpperFilters and/or LowerFilters listed?
