I have an Acer Aspire 5332 and the CD-Rom/DVD Drive (Optiarc DVD RW AD-7580S ATA Device) is not working properly...every time I put a disk of any kind (i.e CD/DVD/Game) it doesnt recognize it and load

Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders







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.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

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.

hope this helps you

I have an Asus 3FS, and my Matshita dvd-ram UJ-860S ATA wont read certain dvd's. I've tried deleting lower and upperfilters and have used Microsofts troubleshooting - still wont read some dvd's and have...

Ok try resetting the BIOS to default value by restarting the computer and pressing F2 Key or Delete Key to Enter BIOS setup then select Load Default settings or any option which shows as default settings depending on the BIOS Manufacturer. Now check if it is working, if the issue persists try booting any Operating System Discs like Linux or WIndows to confirm if it is working properly.

HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GSA-H55N ATA Device doesn't work

That's most likely your upper/lower filters, or drivers acting up.
Try drivers first, as they are easier and faster to fix. Go to device manager under system properties, and uninstall the device and reinstall it.
If it doesn't work delete the upper and lower filters:
Press windows and R keys type in "regedit" and press enter

double click on "computer" on the new window that came up
double click on "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE"
double click on "SYSTEM"
double click on "CurrentControlSet"
double click on "Control"
double click on "Class"
double click on "{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Matshita ATA DVD-RAM driver problem (code 39)

I fixed this problem on a co-workers laptop and it was a Matshita DVD/CD-ROM too. I fixed it for him and THIS SOLUTION DOES WORK!

First of all, you shouldn't have to install drivers for an optical drive. Upon troubleshooting and researching this issue for a couple of days, I found that it was caused by a couple of corrupt entries in the registry. After going into the registry to fix these entries, the drive was recognized and began to work. One thing I can assure you is that you won't have any success finding drivers for this DVD drive.

Whether you're using XP or Vista, you will follow the same exact steps:

Again, this issue is caused by corrupt entries in the registry, therefore, you will have to go into the registry to make changes. Please be VERY careful when working in the registry.

ALWAYS CREATE A FULL BACKUP WHEN MAKING ANY CHANGES TO YOUR SYSTEM. When modifying the registry, you can also create a backup of the registry only and restore it from the backup if any issues occur.

These steps work both in Vista and XP. REMEMBER! Your ONLY mission here is to remove these corrupt registry entries (if they exist). DO NOT touch any other entries in the registry.

1. Click Start then click All Programs

2. Click Accessories then click Run

3. Type regedit into the text box then click OK

4. In the navigation pane,on the left, locate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE then click the folder to open it and find the SYSTEM folder.
Click the SYSTEM folder then go to the folder named CurrentControlSet and click it.
Drill down to the folder named Class then click it.
Within the Class folder, you will see several folders named with a series of alphanumeric characters enclosed in {} brackets.
Find the one labeled {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} and click it.

5. If I'm correct about your problem, in the right pane of the window, you will see UpperFilters (if not, your issue is caused by something else and you can exit the registry). If you do see UpperFilters listed in the right pane then click it.
You may see an UpperFilters.bak registry entry. You do not have to remove it. Click UpperFilters only. If you do not see UpperFilters but do see LowerFilters, you still may have to remove that entry for this fix to be successful.

6. On the Edit menu, click Delete. You can also right-click UpperFilters then click Delete. Confirm the deletion.

7. Now for the LowerFilters, in the right pane, click LowerFilters (again if you DO NOT see this entry nor did you find the UpperFilters entry in the registry, you will need to move onto troubleshoot further).

8. On the Edit menu, click Delete. You can also right-click LowerFilters and click Delete. Confirm the deletion.

9. Now you're finished. Exit the Registry Editor and restart the computer.

After you restart your computer, the first thing that you should do is open My Computer to see if the drive is now listed. If you did find the Upper and LowerFilter entries in your registry and removed them, your drive should appear now.

I am assuming that your drive is still operable and is installed correctly. When I fixed this same issue on my co-workers laptop, the DVD ROM was recognized and working after the reboot. Also, because these registry issues are one of the most likely causes, it doesn't hurt to go into the registry just to see if those entries are there. If they are present, this is most likely the cause and the only solution that I know of.

Try these steps if you haven't already and post the results...

Pioneer dvd-rw dvr-k17a

Are these drives you have fitted yourself, or been added as after market drives?
If so you have run in to the odd way Toshiba set their optical drives as master or slave, although this is generally and IDE #1 error.
To fix this you need to solder pin 45 and 47 together.
47 is the key pin here, as it controls whether the drive is in SLAVE or MASTER mode.
grounded, the drive is in MASTER, open, it is in SLAVE.
pin 45 is simply a grounding pin.
So you'll need to open up the drive, turn it over, and put a small blob of solder on the two pins next to each other - 45 and 47.

If they are original drives or used to work then uninstall the drives and the IDE controllers in Device manager and reboot, letting windows redetect and install the hardware. Also try reinstalling the motherboard drivers available from Toshiba's support site.
