CAUSE-It may happen due to some corrupted registry keys in the computer.we can follow the following steps to delete the upper and the lower filters.


RESOLUTION/ WORKAROUND-
1. Locate the following key in the registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet
2. In some cases, there may be multiple ControlSets. You may see something similar to the following HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002
Or
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002
3. Select either CurrentControl Set or the lowest numbered ControlSet, for example, in the second list above, ControlSet001, and do the following.
4. Locate the following key and highlight it in the left window of the Registry Editor. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
5. In the right window, you should see something similar to the list below. There may be some variation in the listed drivers for the upper and lower filters. For example, the upper filters may list a driver other that PWD_2K. You may also see only upper or only lower filters:
LowerFilters = CDRALW2K
UpperFilters = PWD_2K
6. Delete the upper and/or lower filters.
7. Exit the Registry Editor and restart the system.

NOTE: If the computer still does not recognize the drives, go back into the registry and repeat the above steps for editing the registry for each of the ControlSets listed on the system.

Dvd/cd writer will not recognize cd's or blank disk's will recognize dvd but not play.


Did this problem occur after a OS upgrade? Open Device Manager, DVD/CD-ROM drives, open and uninstall the DVD/CD rom. Reboot your machine, Win 7 should apply the correct driver. If you need a driver go to your manufacturer's website. Drivers and support section.

Check your power connector to the DVD Rom and also check the cables (Sata or IDE). If this doesn't bring any solution, scan your system using updated anti virus. Good luck.

Dvd-rom sd-616E driver no longer recognized by


Reboot the computer and go into the BIOS, see if its recognized in there, if its not recognized then you'll need to turn the computer off and unseat and reseat the cable and the power connector to the dvd drive. Then turn on the computer again and go into the BIOS, if the dvd drive is still not recognzied then you'll need to replace the drive.

If the dvd drive is recognized in the BIOS and not in windows then you'll need to go into the system restore in windows and choose a date the last time the computer was working, it will restore your computer back to this date and reboot. At that point it should recognize your dvd drive. If it doesn't then your OS is corrupt and you'll need to wipe out the drive and restore your computer back to factory defaults.

Dvd rom is not recognized


Not all computers detect DVD-ROMs. Look at the label on your laptop drive. If it says it supports DVD-ROMs, than you will be able to use it. If not, consider buying a DVD-ROM drive.

If the pc isn't recognizing the hardware the main reason this happens is that you need to install the proper drivers.

I cannot get my DVD Rom drive to recognize any DVD


You need to install the DVD decoder that came with the drive such as PowerDVD or WinDVD. If you dont have the disks or setup files for those, you can download a free Windows DVD player program such as VLC Media Player that will work. http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
