could you post the exact error that you get? i would not suggest using any of those registry tools...i haven't found one yet that i trust completely (some do work...i just don't like em...if i'm afraid to manually edit my registry...why would i trust a program to do it?)

the registry settings used by itunes drivers for importing and burning cd's and dvd's are missing. Roxio doesnt even recognize a drive being present, and when i use the burning software that came with the drive i got a message one time saying something was missing but cant remember the exact message. It will allow me to place songs, files, and all sorts of data on the disc and will appear to burn it but when it says its complete the disc is still empty.

When i first got the optical drive, Sony DW-Q28A, my computer didnt recognize it at all. I tried to go through device manager and many other steps to solve the problem so I asked for help on here and the advice was to go into the system registry files and delete the upper and lower filters but i think i may have accidentaly deleted something else. Anyways after i deleted the registry files the dvd-rw drive started working but it wasnt until a couple months later i tried to burn something and it didnt work. The software it came with was NTI DVD-maker 7 gold version. I uninstalled roxio and reinstalled it several times and it still doesnt recognize a drive. its roxio easy cd and dvd creator 6 which is kinda old
