Hi,

It’s strange that I am unable to see any kind of CD drive anywhere in my PC. Not this, even when I insert any CD or DVD, nothing happens and even I can’t find them manually. A few days before, everything was fine and same PC was reading my entire driver as well as installation disks. I am using Vista and it is a brand new system which I bought about two weeks before.

Please help.

Thank you!

Following might be reasons for the problem you are facing and can resolve this by following steps.

1. It might happen that your CD drive cables get loosen causing you the problem of non-availability of CD drive.

2. Right click on My Computer > Go to Device Manager > Check whether CD sign is showing and if showing then whether it is yellow, which means CD drive has not been recognized. If so, then check out the brand and model of unit and try to update drivers from web.

3. You can also do this by uninstalling the device drivers and then reboot. Windows should automatically pick these drivers up on reboot.

4. Download CDgone, right click on the downloaded file and choose Extract All. Then double-click on cdgone.reg. Say "Yes" to the merge question and then reboot. See if the drives have returned.

Anyone of the above mentioned points should resolve the problem but even if it doesn’t then you may have a faulty drive which needs to get replaced.

George52,

This may be caused by upgrading to Vista or uninstalling your CD/DVD filter driver. To address this issue, We may need to remove the concerned filter driver:

1. Click on Start.
2. Then type regedit from the Start box menu.
3. Click on the regedit from the Program list.
4. Find the: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlClass{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
5. In case you have Upperfilters, please make sure to delete it.
6. Click on YES.
7. Close the window.
8. Restart your computer.
