DVD player not recognized


If your computer's CD or DVD drive appears to be missing or corrupted and you've received a "Code 19" error message that says "Your registry might be corrupted," you can fix it by following some steps to modify the Windows registry.

Note that while this process isn't particularly complicated, it does require that you are familiar with computers and know how to modify the Windows registry.

If you aren't comfortable doing this, you should seek the help of a qualified computer professional to assist. Click the "Start" button, click the "Run" option and then type "regedit" and click the "OK" button.

Use the navigation pane on the left side of the window to navigate to the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Select the "UpperFilters" key in the right side of the window, then click the "Edit" button and then click the "Delete" option.

Click "Yes" to confirm the deletion.

Click the "LowerFilters" key, then select the "Edit" button and choose the "Delete" option again. Click "Yes" to confirm the deletion.

Close the Registry Editor window and restart the computer to finish applying the settings that should fix the Code 19 error.

Optiarc DVD RW AD-7740H "code 19"


Microsoft Windows uses device drivers to send application requests to the CD or DVD drive; the driver acts as a middle-man, translating communication between the operating system and the component. The operating system enables users to manage drivers on the computer via the Device Manager. If a driver malfunctions, the Device Manager displays an error code. Reinstalling or upgrading the driver can resolve most problems with the optical drive, but error codes 19, 31, 32 and 39 require modification to the Windows Registry to fix.

Click the Windows "Start" button, type "regedit" in the Search field and point to "regedit.exe." Press "Ctrl-Shift-Enter" to launch the Registry Editor with administrative credentials. Navigate through "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE ' SYSTEM ' CurrentControlSet ' Control ' Class ' {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}." Right-click "LowerFilters" from the right pane and select "Delete" from the context menu. Click "Yes," when prompted, to remove the value from the registry. Right-click "UpperFilters." Click "Delete" and select "Yes" to remove the value. Restart the computer to resolve the error code. Hope this helps

Code 19- philips cdrw/cvd scb5265 ata device how do i fix it


Do you receive the following error message?
Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. To fix this problem you can first try running a Troubleshooting Wizard. If that does not work, you should uninstall and then reinstall the hardware device. (Code 19)
Code 19 is a common error message, your computer sends because NERO, Roxio, and similar CD/DVD recording software and also and update for Windows VISTA (KB938194) is causing issues. It can create problems with your sound as well.
Even if you uninstall these it will not resolve the issue, because these programs leave the problem inside your registry.
What is happening to your computer?
Device Manager sees the drive, but you get the yellow exclamation mark and it indicates "Your registry might be corrupted. (Code 19)"
How most people try to fix this error – and you are probably doing the same - without any luck…

If you try to uninstall the device and the driver and read new hardware - no change.
You can try to update the driver and the wizard will say there is no better driver found for the hardware.
You can try to run the install CD (copied it to a flash card and ran it from a flash card reader since you can't run it on the DVD drive) - same problem will occur.
You can't do a repair install of Windows since it is on CD and it won't boot properly from the drive.
You can try to use an external DVD writer (HP dc5000) through the USB port and it will get the same code19 error.
Even if you try manually copy the drivers listed in driver details for the device - no luck

Code 19 and SD R2102 CD-RW/DVD-ROM Burner


Code 19 Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged.
This can occur when more than one service is defined for a device, if there is a failure opening the service subkey, or if the driver name cannot be obtained from the service subkey.
Recommended Solution :
Many third-party programs that control CD or DVD burning (as well as some player applications) install CD- or DVD-ROM filter device drivers into Windows. These filter drivers are meant to allow for low-level hooks into the hardware, to allow for functions such as packet writing (where a CD-R/W or DVD-/+RW can be written incrementally, like a hard disk).

These filter drivers sometimes have problems that can cause the CD or DVD drive to stop working correctly. The device entry for the CD or DVD drive in the Device Manager may show up with an error descriptor that reads "The device could not start." Additionally, there may be an error message that reads "One of the filter drivers for this device is invalid." The devices themselves do not show up in Explorer. Error codes for the device include code 31, code 32, code 19 or code 39, and sometimes the even more ominous warning "Your registry might be corrupted" appears.

Fixing the problem simply involves deleting the filter entries for the third-party device drivers. These entries can sometimes become damaged (which is what produces the "corrupt registry" warning).

To delete the offending keys, open the Registry and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlCl ***\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}. . Delete the keys named UpperFilters and LowerFilters and reboot.

Several of the products made by Roxio are infamous for causing this problem, although in fairness to the company the most recent versions of their Roxio CD/DVD writing software (6.2 and higher) do not have these problems. Users of 5.0 or 6.0 editions of the Easy CD & DVD Creator product, which has been bundled with many new PCs in the past, should upgrade to 6.2 or better. Other programs can also cause this problem, with the same solution.

Note that after you do this, you may lose functionality in the program that uses the filter drivers, which may need to be reinstalled.
