Problem is with iTunes


hi try this: The intention is to remove all iTunes and Quicktime software references. The following steps remove the software traces and worked on my machine. 1. Using add/remove programs uninstall Quicktime (click on Start ?> Settings ?> Control Panel ?> Add/Remove Programs) 2. Using add/remove programs uninstall iTunes 3. Right click on My Computer, use Search and remove all programs named Quicktime 4. Right click on My Computer, use Search and remove all programs named iTunes (except your iTunes download, so you won?t have to sit through another long download session). 5. Left click on Start, click Run, type ?regedit?, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, click on SOFTWARE, and remove the Apple Programs folder (you may want to check in case you have other Apple applications, but all I had were iTunes and Quicktime in my Apple folder). Steps 1 through 5 should remove all traces of the software and now you can install iTunes. make sure you install all the latest updates from apple hope this will work for you :)

It's not "regeit" but "regedit".

Drives Disappear After You Install ITunes or Norton Ghost** If after installing ITunes or Norton Ghost, you get Device Manager error code, try locating the Audio File System (AFS) driver from Oak Technologies at C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\afs.sys or doing a search for it. Rename it afs.sys.txt and reboot. This driver is incompatible with the driver found in iTunes and Norton Ghost. The driver from these two companies is the same and made by a third company called Gear Software. After renaming the afs.sys driver file you will lose access to the CD burning feature of of the following: HP Memories Disc Creator, Liquid Audio Portal Player, Oak Technology SimpliCD, or Broderbund's Print Shop version 20. If you still wish to use the burning feature in any of that software, upgrade it to a Vista versions. For more information, see the article here - http://www.gearsoftware.com/wiki/index.php?title=CD/DVD_drives_disappear_after_installing_iTunes.

Please do all the below even if you have done some before as it is often the total process which solves the issue.

Try this - Control Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double click the device - Driver's Tab - click
Update Drivers (this will likely do nothing) - then RIGHT CLICK the drive - UNINSTALL - REBOOT 
this will refresh the default driver stack.

Then work your way through these - remember the drive could be bad, could have a loose cable or
slight corrosion on the contacts (usually for a laptop) and other issues.

Another possibility is that the cables are loose. Remove ALL power, then check cables in both
ends. Remove and replace, do not just snug. For laptops you can often clean the power and
data contacts with a pencil eraser.

Some DVD drives do not use the Windows default drivers so check with the System maker and
device maker to see if there is firmware or drivers for you drive if needed.

Stop working


Code 10 could mean either the driver has gotten corrupted: repair for this is to reinstall the driver; or it could mean the drive itself has come to the end of it's lifespan; repair for this is to replace with a new drive. Before buying a new drive check all cables going to the drive to see if any came loose, and reinstall the driver. If this does not work you will need a new drive. Hope this helps & please take a moment to rate my solution. Thanks.

Hello Mohawk kid
Happy Holidays
You seem to has a hardware detection problem, the resolution for this particular problem may be, change the pin on drive to Cable Select, and remove the driver on Devide manager, then the system restart and redetect the DVD/RW, ( I PRESUME) so you can reinstall the software that came for this device, or download a new version from the programmers for DISC REV 7 -10 to another. good luck
