This seems to be a known issue caused after removing a CD/DVD recording program - like Roxio CD Creator - in Windows XP.

See Microsoft Support, which presents exactly the same solution as General Ghou and amitpandey suggest: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060

Obs: Pay attention to the registry key location (4D36E965), since there may be other very similar ones.

I had this problem, and that fixed it.

I have performed the fix above 2 or 3 times. It works at first to fix the problem but then reverts back and stops working after a few days. The only fix that lasts at least a few months is to do a system recovery that sets your computer to factory settings. But then you have to start from scratch installing the programs you want and it takes forever to put back your files the way you want and even then I lost some of my files in the back up process.

    I've tried the solution above and it works for a few days and then reverts and stopes working again. The only thing that works for at least a few months is a system recovery that sets your computer back to factory settings. (Warning: back up all your files and programs or you will lose them in this prosses.)

  • dinaday Jan 08, 2009

    Does anyone know what triggers this problem? I tried installing a minolta printer that may have caused the problem have any of you?

Go to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
And delete "Upperfilters" and "Lowerfilters" and then restart. (Do not delete if it ends in ".bak")
Alternatively, reinstall pxengine from the Vaio Recovery Wizard

What type of CDs should I purchase to use with my Sony DVD RW AW-G540A ATA device to write/play video?


Most CDs should work. If you are looking for high quality (least error rate) media, use Taiyo Yuden media, they seem to be one of the best. Verbatim and Ritek are some lesser, but also good brands. If your burner won't work with most CDs, there is likely something wrong with it.

SONY DVD RW AW-G540A ATA DEVICE IS NOT WORKING


If the device is listed you can select it and click uninstall, then promptly reboot the computer and it will automaticly reinstall it, you should be up and running in no time if that works, if not it could be a registry error related to the upper and lower filters that could take a bit of skill to repair. please let us know if the lights come on at all or the drive spools up and makes any sound. if not you might be calling sony for a replacement


cheers
