Jerry K had a 17 page long thread about fixing the problem that I had encountered, sadly it had been closed, so am starting a new thread to hopefully find an answer to my dilemma.
A couple months ago my DVD drive stopped showing up in my computer. When I boot the computer you can hear the dvd drive spinning up, it opens when asked, and when you insert a cd/DVD you can hear the drive start. That is as far as it gets.
I have tried downloading the registry fix, the doug knox fix, neither worked. Not surprising, as when I went into the registry there were no upper and lower filters in that folder to be deleted by those two programs. I have downloaded the windows fix, and today I replaced the drive all together, and that also did not resolve the issue. I am at my wits end. In the bios CD/DVD is the second in order in boot sequence, so I assume this means it sees the drive.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
