My dvd/cd-rom is not able to play a dvd or cd of anytype


Restart your PC and go into your BIOS and disable the CD/DVD-R, this way it doesn't detect your CD/DVD-R it when you boot to Windows. Once you're in Windows, do a re-start again and go back into your BIOS and enable the CD/DVD-R.

Try to go this website gur.in, click registry tweaks and on the Tech domain registry look for Restore missing CD drive. Just run it and allow. After that restart the laptop. Check if CD/DVD drive is back and test a disc.

Hope it works!

My windows media player s not working due to some sound device poblem


If it was working recently and you didn't make any changes or delete any files from the windows folder, the the audio drivers of your sound card might have corrupted or missing, you need to reinstall them. Most audio drivers come with the motherboard cd, so if you still have the cd, please insert it on the cd/dvd drive and run the setup.
If you can't do, please let me know with the details of your computer configuration and operating system installed on it.
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Upper and lower filter are missing in the CD registry CD player won't burn CDs in my sonic in a media Center says there's no CD drive recognized. Also in iTunes but it does work, burn CDs in my Nero


Hi, I have gone through the same issue in past. It all starts when you have installed a new cd/dvd burning software on your computer. All you need to do is uninstall Sonic and iTunes and re-install them so that they take all default settings that has been changed by Nero. In my case it worked like a charm.

I think your computer displays a message that ntldr is missing.

Use the following steps to replace these files. Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the optical (CD or DVD) drive and restart the computer.
  1. When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD , press any key on the keyboard.
  2. Once in the Welcome to Setup screen, press the R key to repair Windows.
  3. Press the 1 key and then press Enter .
  4. Type the Administrator password at the prompt.
  5. Copy the NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM files to the root directory using the following steps:
    1. Type copy d:\i386\ntldr c:\ (assumes the optical (CD or DVD) drive is d) and then press the Enter key.
    2. Press the Y key at the Overwrite ntldr? prompt.
    3. Type d:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\ and then press the Enter key.
    4. Press the Y key at the Overwrite ntldr? prompt.
  6. Once both files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the optical (CD or DVD) drive and type exit at the prompt and then press the Enter key. The computer will reboot.

How to fix Code 39 error
with DVD/CD-ROM drives in Windows XP or Vista
I was fixing a computer the other day and ran across the following error in Device Manager on the CD-ROM drive.

"Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)"

Because of this error, the drive did not show up in My Computer and the customer was unable to burn CDs or read any CDs.

I uninstalled the drive from Device Manager, rebooted the computer, and the problem remained, so obviously it appeared to be a registry issue that I would have to solve. If you are receiving this Code 39 error and your CD or DVD drive is missing and has a yellow exclamation mark in Device Manager, I hope this information is useful.
To solve this Code 39 error, follow these instructions:
NOTE: After removing these registry keys and rebooting, it may be necessary to reinstall any CD or DVD recording applications.
1) Close all open programs

2) Click on Start, Run, and type REGEDIT and press Enter

3) Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
  • SYSTEM
  • CurrentControlSet
  • Control
  • Class
  • {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
4) This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
  • UpperFilters
  • LowerFilters
  • UpperFilters.bak
  • LowerFilters.bak
5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor

7) Reboot your computer

8) Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

Another possible CD/DVD issue you may want to investigate
http://www.pchell.com/support/copytocd.shtml

Microsoft surprised more than a few people on Thursday when one of its developers told a technical crowd in Australia that 32-bit versions of Windows Vista won't be able to play back next-generation high-definition protected content, i.e. commercial Blu-ray and HD DVD discs.
Later Thursday, representatives in the U.S. said that senior program manager Steve Riley was mistaken.
"The information he provided to that audience was incorrect," a representative told CNET News.com. "Playback is possible with Windows Vista in 32-bit."
The decision of whether to offer that support, the representative said, won't be made by Microsoft but rather by the third-party software makers that create DVD playback software, folks like CyberLink and InterVideo.
"It is up to the ISVs providing playback solutions to determine whether the intended playback environment, including environments with a 32-bit CPU, meets the performance requirements to allow high-definition playback while supporting the guidelines set forth by the content owners," Microsoft PR manager Adam Anderson said in a statement. "No version of Windows Vista will make a determination as to whether any given piece of content should play back or not."

Recording tab inthe properties of the cd drive is absent


Are you sure it's a blank CD? You can't write to a CD that has already been written to and "finalized"

If this is a new CD player, it should have the letters CD-RW printed on the front. If not, it's a reader only.

If you've used the CD writer before, go to Control Panel/System/Device Manager, and delete the CD player. Then reboot, and it will discover the player, and install the drivers again.
