My Pioneer DVD_RW dvr-k17A ATA Reads DVD's but not CD's

My Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 stopped reading CD's it still reads DVD's but not CD's. In an earlier message you had said to find a registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Delete the upper and lower Filter or witch is available close window and restart the PC.

I don't see anything identified as upper or lower Filter? What needs to be deleted?

Please send any information to

    I also have the same problem. I have the exact same drive and model of laptop. After I had it for a while (and burned CDs; read them too) it suddenly stopped working. It reads and burns DVDs fine, but I can't get the CDs to be read. The drive makes a funny sound whenever I put a blank or not blank CD in, and nothing else happens. It says the drive is working fine in my Device Manager.
