    CD Rom not recognized, warning@device manager

    Hi,

    I recently went through this same problem and resolved but unfortunately I didnt log the procedure taken to
    resolve this issue with cd rom malfunction. I suppose I was simply overwhelmed with joy at finally resolving this
    issue. All was well until this evening when the drive went into that dreadful eternal spin. Honestly, I'm a bit fried and really hope someone here can help me without further ado!!!

    Thank you so so much in advance

    PS: this is a registry issue, if I remember correctly!!! (vague recollection)

    Tea,

    The first thing I usually do in cases like this is to go into Device Manager and uninstall the drive then reboot. Windows will usually recoginize the drive and reload the drivers or ask you to do so if they are not included in the Windows distribution.

    Good Morning RetiredGeek and thanks so much for your reply. I checked for updates via device manager knowing that all software
    was currently up-to-date. As my mind ease from frustration, I remembered deleting the upper and lower filters and not certain how/why this has occurred unless windows re-installed during an update process. Not sure but this is becoming a huge hinderance.

    Hi Ted. Thanks. You are absolutely right. I previously deleted the filters in the registry. Any idea why this problem has occurred again?
