Missing CD/DVD rom possible fix...

by featherman In reply to Windows successfully load ...

This type of behavior has been linked to addition or removal of CD/DVD-ROM authoring tools. Please see Microsoft link here (KB314060):

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;314060

The MS article mentions Roxio/Adaptec (now Sonic) EZ CD Creator, but I have seen this behavior with Sonic MyDVD as well. Try the registry hack they mention, and restart....

This was the answer

I removed the registry keys mentioned above and the problem was fixed. I had CDRWIN and Burnatonce installed, so it could have been either of those programs as well. I think I also uninstalled Roxio which MSDN says is related to the problem. Also upgraded WinAMP recently, which does contain Sonic software these days (Roxio)

This worked for me too

Thanks for the suggestion. I wasn't using Roxio, but I was using Quintessential Player (QCD) and then all of sudden, poof my CD/DVD was gone. I was getting the same error message from Winodws in the control panel. I earased the registry keys like it said and un-installed QCD and presto, my DVD is back.

Thanks!

Me TOO!!!!

by rjsprinkler In reply to Windows successfully load ...

what is the answer to the problem? I bought an external USB cd-r dvd burner today and got the same message. this is some kind of BIO attack aimed at stopping your computers ability to burn cd's. i had Roxio ez creator plus when it all went down.
