You can remove by going to the device manager. this is located by right cliking on the my computer icon on the start menu. then, slide down to properties then, click. once you click on properties, you will see the system properties window. click on the hardware tab. then click on device manager. you can pick out the extra drive here and remove it from your system.

Hi, I have a Sony Vaio Desktop Serial #PCV-RS100. I just recently got a new hard drive so I re-installed windows and needed to update all my drivers. Alfter updating everything, I am having problems with...

Shut down and unplug your system if already running. Opencasing and disconnection CD/DVD and remove it out. Check its all connectors, isthere all pins exists. Check jumper setting. If both hard disk and CD/DVD areattached with the same DATA CABLE (ALSO CALLED RIBBON CABLE) then jumpersetting of the CD/DVD must be at SL (SLAVE). AND if they are connection withthe different DATA CABLES they must set at MA (MASTER). NOW start your systemonce without CD/DVD and again shut down it properly. Attach again CD/DVD andwatch it. If all efforts have been done, then you should check DATA CABLE maybe it broken some where. Change the DATA cable and you will done INSHALLAH.

Windows XP/Vista/7 should automatically use its own drivers, so that you can read from CD/DVD disks.
You'll need "extra" software if you want to play a DVD-movie, or if you want to write CD/DVD disks,
e.g., 'PowerDVD' to "play", and Nero Burning to "write".

Otherwise, here are the manual steps (overview):

1) Uninstall the CD/DVD drive in Device Manager and DO NOT RESTART the computer.

2) Uninstall your CD burning software (make sure you have the installation disc or you can resinstall from Start, Programs, PC Help and Tools, Recovery Manager (or Driver/Application Recovery). If you don't have the installation discs, skip this step - it might still work).

3) Open the registry editor (Start -> Run -> enter Regedit) ... might want to make a backup of the registry at this point.

4) Open the following keys:

+ CurrentControlSet (or the current control set with lowest number if that is all that is listed)
+ Control
+ Class

5) Select 4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318. It has to be this exact key - make sure you can see the last numbers!!!

6) Delete the UpperFilter and or the LowerFilters value in the right window if either exists.

7) RESTART the computer - this step is important. Wait for Windows to find and install the CD/DVD drive you removed earlier.

8) Reinstall your burning software and restart the computer again.

Cd/dvd is not reading.

Install it with software from the maker and model of it. It needs that extra information to allow it to deal with different types of folders.

Install to computer problem


Sounds like a case of jumper settings. If the CD-RW was installed as secondary IDE to an existing hard drive which is the Master, pls set jumper to SL. They are located at the rear of the CD unit between the IDE connector and the audio out.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
