If your computer can’t read your DVD/CD drives, you may try editing the registry by doing the following:

  • Close all programs
  • Go to Start
  • Click on Run
  • Type REGEDIT
  • Hit Enter
  • Once you are on the regedit folder, click on the plus (+) signs of the following:

    • SYSTEM
    • CurrentControlSet
    • Control
    • Class {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
  • Look for any of the following in the right hand column and delete them:

    • UpperFilters
    • LowerFilters
    • UpperFilters.bak
    • LowerFilters.bak
  • Close the Registry Editor
  • Restart your computer
  • After rebooting your system, go to My Computer and check if the CD or DVD drives are already showing.

Dear Homer,

Did you know about Bios. After starting windows you first go to your Bios setup by pressing F2 key. Then find out whether your dvd/cd rom is off conidition .if you find off then make it on condition. But If your dvd/cd rom is on condition then you go to your Control panel. After opening your control panel, you then go to Device Manager where you find your Dvd/CD rom drive. There will a plus(+) sign before the dvd/cd rom icon. You just click the + sign. You will sec whether your dvd/cd rom is present or not. If present then right click on dvd/cd rom drive. From right click option you just uninstall the dvd/cd rom drive. Then restart your computer. After that your operating system will automatically detect your dvd/cd rom. If your problem still exists then your dvd/cd drive may be out of order. That's why it can not detect by your operating system. Then you need to replace your present dvd/cd rom drive.
