It will contain info on how to fix your non-detection problem.

Any problems, just ask.

I'm assuming that it doesnt matter the brand of the device when doing this? The one in the link isnt the same, just asking.

Correct.... problem is unique to Windows XP... not the drive brand or model.

Ok thank you. And after reading your directions, this is just 1 line you have to delete, correct? I was reading like you'll have to go in different keys to find the same line to delete.

some folks who do this state they only find one...either upper or lower. Delete both or if only one is present, delete the one.

This is Microsofts exact method of performing this procedure if you wish to read it: (scroll down to: Method #1: Remove the registry entry)

[url]http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;320553[/url]

and some drive problems can be fixed using this method:

- Press on "START"
- Then on "CONTROL PANEL"
- Then click on "Administrative Tools"
- Then on "Computer Management"
- Click on the [+] of "STORAGE"
- Then on the [+] of "REMOVABLE STORAGE"
- Then on the [+] of "LIBRAIRIES"
Your CD Drive should be listed, click on it to enable it.
- Then try your CD tray to see if it opens and close normally.
- It should now also appear on the "My Computer"

and if you're afraid to do this procedure manually, here's a file that will do it for you....

If you have a problem of non-detection, eg: drive is not visable in My Computer or Device Manager, then you probably need the "delete upper and lower filters in the registry fix". Here's a file you can download. Unzip it and run the file.... after performing this, reboot and Windows will automatically detect and install your drive. [url=www.aumha.org/downloads/cdgone.zip]CdGone.zip[/url]

After unzipping this file to a temp folder, read the TEXT file for further instructions.

This info was already posted here: [url]http://forums.driverguide.com/showthread.php?t=22050[/url] (took me a few minutes to find it)
