Hi, There is nothing wrong with your CD/DVD drive.

Your Registry is corrupt. Now you are missing the Upper or Lower filters(or both) on your CD/DVD drive.

Try System Restore and here's a Microsoft article on the subject.http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060

After rec. cds to hard drive when I re start the system they arent there any more.? Help


Hello,

what you need to do in a situation like this is to create another folder and then copy the recorded Cd's into the folder or cut and paste it.

Create the folder on you desktop, then after copying or cutting the recorded songs from its location to the created folder, restart your system and check if it will disappear again this time.

Also the recorded Cd's my have hidden somewhere in your hard drive. You can use the search on your system to locate the location.

Also take record of the remaining disk space of your hard drive so that you will know if the recorded Cd's has been deleted or hidden somewhere in your hard drive.

I wish you the best of luck,

Take care.

My DVD-CD drive doesn't appear when I try to use it. When I stick a CD or DVD in the drive it doesn't respond. It's as if it just disappeared. I've tried system recovery and get results but the drive still...


Under your laptop there is a small screw holding the DVD drive in place remove the screw and take the DVD out of the laptop turn on the laptop, then turn it off again, put the DVD drive back in and secure with the screw
then when you trun the laptop back on it should say windows has found new hardware and then it will reinstall the drivers

Hi,

Uninstall the driver from Device Mgr, then go to registry editor, browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
On the left hand side delete the Upper and Lower filter. Restart the PC and reinstall the driver. You may also create new user account if issue continues.

OS is Windows XP Professional CD drive will not reconize a DVD+R for recording data. The drive is a HL-D-ST CDRW/DVD GCC4244.


A CDRW/DVD is a CD-burner and DVD-ROM combined unit. It is not meant to record DVDs only CDs.

It will not recognise a blank DVD as it is unable to read any file system.
