    I am having the same problem I turn on my laptop and sometimes the DVD optical drive is recognized but more often than not the dvd rom is not found ANYWHERE. I transport my laptop frequently but I have never dropped or misused it. Help me please!

    Its definately a hardware problem, not software!... i updated all of my drivers, and used the microsoft support diagnosis.. and it said there was no response from the driver... i gave the disk drive some firm taps from the bottom and she sang like a bird and started working again.. i guess i'll keep doing that untill it dies out and i'll replace the disk drive... hope this helps anybody.

My hp pavilion dv2000 is not showing the cd/dvd-rom icon or drive on my laptop


Go to HP's Website and search for your laptop; it is very possible that your computer does not have the drivers installed; look for drivers, then "Disk Drives" and download the file.

I have been using my Hp 1170e burner for a year plus, no problems, except for having to restart for computer to recongize burner. But now it says i have a p coffin error. I dont have the install disc...


You probably have a "pcoffin.sys and/or "pcoffin.dll" system file on the PC. It is a driver used by a number different DVD programs. I would not delete them at this point.

This is a link to some freeware software. You can try to see if you can burn a CD/DVD using this instead of the software giving you the driver error. There are tutorials on the site.

My DVD drive on my Toshiba Satellite A75 S206 isn't recongized


I was able to find this by insomniac on CDROM Guide:
You don't need drivers for optical devices (CD and DVD drives) as Windows has native support for them.

It sounds like a corrupt Registry entry, which is common with XP.

The following should fix it.

Start Registry Editor (Start, Run and type in regedit then click O.K)

Locate the UpperFilters value under the following key in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.

Locate the LowerFilters value under the same key in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.

Quit Registry Editor.

NOTE: After you remove the Upperfilters value and the Lowerfilters value, if you notice lost functionality in a particular program, such as CD recording software, you may need to reinstall that software.


Restart your computer

Acer issue: itunes wont recognize my cd burner


The DVD burner *IS* the CD burner (the same drive does both jobs). Does Windows itself recongize it? (if so, is it able to burn CD's using it?)
