It appears that your cd/dvd drive drivers have been corrupted. Remove the drivers and reinstall them.
Click "start", select control panel,click on the system icon,click on the tab "hardware", then click on device manager, click on DVD-CD drives and finally click on your dvd/cd drive it will open a window that will allow you to uninstall the driver. You can re-install your drive by using an install disk, rebooting your computer and lettign XP detect it or re-install via the add new hardware icon in control panel.

Your upper and lower filter needs clearing.

Click on Start --> Run --> and type in 'regedit'.
Upon entering, expand the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" >> System >> CurrentControlSet >> Control >> Class

Do you see:
{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

click this and it will show you the contents on the right.

Do you see: "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" ?

Delete them. Right click and choose"delete"

Exit the registry. Reboot your computer

Good day sir, the error 19 is caused by missing system files and system registry, there are several ways to fix it, but the most reliable one is to reinstall your XP, just make sure that the CD, CD/DVD drive, Hard Drive and your memory is in good order.

Tsstcorp cddvdw ts l633p error code 19


Code 19 means there is a driver conflict such as two devices trying to use the same resources.

Try this - Control Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double click the device - Driver's Tab - click
Update Drivers (this will likely do nothing) - then RIGHT CLICK the drive - UNINSTALL - REBOOT
this will refresh the default driver stack.

Normally the above will fix that issue if not work your way down through these even if you have done
them before.

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

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

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

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

Norton 360 install has replaced/overridden DVD drive


Hi, I can certainly understand how you feel and hope I can help.

error 19 isnt necesarily a corrupt driver, it can be 2 drivers trying to use the same resource (as in norton's backup drive and your cd drive, for example)

Try this - Click the start button, right click on "Computer", select "Properties", then click "Device Manager" in the upper left hand corner.

Open the bit that says "CD/DVD Drives" and try right clicking on the drives there and selecting "Update Driver Software". This will probably do nothing. Don't worry, I didnt really expect it to. Now right click on the drives, and select "Delete" and then reboot. This will reset the drivers for ya.

This fix usually DOES work. Most of the time. If it doesnt work, try the ones below.
