Question about Sony Dual layer (DRU700A) DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner
Optical drive is recognized in bios, but not after windows xp boot up. I deleted the upper and lower registry filters, swapped cables, drives, doesn't fix it. It's a problem with windows, I just don't know what the problem is. Does anyone know if there has been an update that could cause this?
This is the registry fix you're referring to, correct?
Have you visited windows update since you removed the filters? Do so, and they may offer you new drivers. You may need to manually update the drivers, if no joy there. For help updating the drivers, see this guide.
I'm assuming you have checked in device manager and the drive is not correctly detected there. If you can see it there, uninstall it and reboot the system.
Also see standard MS articles here, here, here. You might try the clean boot described there to see if it's some kind of software driver conflict that's causing it to fail to be seen. Or change the drive configuration to dma.
If that doesn't lead to a solution, I'd consider running sfc /scannow on the system to check for corruption of the system files.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
