Hey,
My cd-rom drive on my laptop doesn't work. It doesn't show up in my computer.
Also when i check the boot list it says it has loaded. In bios it is enabled. However when i check in msinfo32 and click on the CD-ROM thing nothing shows up so i think it is not installed.
It is a IBM Laptop with removeable CD-rom and Floppy drives
The cd-rom drive is a TEAC CD-224E 24x internal IDE
Os is winXP

Thanks.

Try add new hardware. Else open your hardware details and see if it's listed, it should tell you of any driver issues.

Hey got some new info on my problem :-

Restore Missing CD or DVD Drive
Reports have filtered in that CD or DVD drives will suddenly cease to exist in XP systems. Most often this has been reported in conjunction with program installations and Windows upgrades, but it has also happened for no apparent reason. This tweak will restore the missing drives after a reboot.


[Start] [Run] [Regedit]
Registry Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class
Key Name: {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Value Data: [Delete All Value Data from UpperFilters and LowerFilters]
Note: Do not delete the Key or the Multi-String Values. Delete only the data values.
Exit Registry and Reboot


i think that will solve my problem however i dont know what it means when it says "Delete All Value Data from UpperFilters and LowerFilters" ?
Any help plz.

Hi, this is my first post, but I am wondering If you, NTD, fixed your CD drive. I am having the same problem as you. I will try contacting you any other way.

Thanks.

P.S. If you or anybody else knows how to fix it, please e-mail me.
