The Optiarc DVD RW AD-7561A ATA won't work on hp pav dv6000
When I go into the device manager it tells me that I have the most updated software available, but it also acknowleges that the program cannot run. When I search for solutions, it thinks about it for awhile and then nothing.

Check BIOS for Optical drive. Press F key noted on boot screen to enter. If it's not noted there, you need to check physical connections. Might just need to be re-seated with power disconnected. Re-check BIOS and make sure to save before exiting.
If it is noted in BIOS and Windows still fails to see the drive. Run a thorough virus scan, then boot into Safe Mode by pressing F8 during startup. Go to Device Manager, and select Show Hidden devices under the View tab. Delete all drives and reboot. Windows should say new hardware found and install.
This should take care of the problem if there is nothing wrong with the drive. Replace or seek professional support is not, and good luck
Here are some things that you can try to resolve this problem.
Update the driver
In the device Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab, and then click Update Driver to start the Hardware Update Wizard. Follow the instructions to update the driver.
may be prompted to provide the path of the driver. Windows may have the
driver built-in, or may still have the driver files installed from the
last time that you set up the device. If you are asked for the driver
and you do not have it, you can try to download the latest driver from
the hardware vendor’s Web site.
weird. Try using Windows System Restore to revert back to before installing dameon tools. You can try installing it again but I would re-download just to be safe. It it happens again you might want to try alcohol 120% instead.
it might be a lens problem , if it was working ok before for sometime then its a drive related issue hardware try changing the drive go to ebay find a cheap one like under 60 bucks , also try checking with drive info tools
You do need to take out the high and low filter in the string in the registry. Also remove the same filters w/ a .bak extension. I own a large computer business and we see this almost daily in XP and up.
Windows uses generic simple drivers for any optical drives. Try deleting the drive from device manager and reboot. You do not need to download anything special for windows to operate a drive. If you cannot access the drive then it may be damaged or a hardware fault.
I beleive that this code is being displayed under the Device Status in the Properties window of the DVD Drive in Device Manager.
If it is so, you need to do some modifications with the Registry to resolve the issue and I am sure that the issue will be resolved with this.
However, since you had not specified the Operating System which is installed in the Notebook is Vista or XP.
However, I am providing the links which includes the steps for both Vista and XP to edit the registry to resolve the issue with Error Code 10 with the DVD Drive in your Notebook.
Removing Upper and Lower Filter in XP :
You need to perform the steps listed under Advanced Troubleshooting to delete the Upper and Lower filters.
Removing Upper and Lower Filter in Vista :
You need to perform the steps listed under Resolution in the link above.
You may not find both the Upper and Lower filters according to the instructions links provided above.
Delete the ones among the Upper filter or Lower filter or both which you find in the locations mentioned.
This should solve the issue...
