How CD/DVD issues can occur

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 CD/DVD 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).

How to fix CD/DVD issues
First Backup the registry.

Step 1: Start Registry Editor
type "regedit" in the Start Run box.
Step 2: Delete the UpperFilters registry entry

1. In Registry Editor, expand My Computer, and then expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
2. Expand SYSTEM, and then expand CurrentControlSet.
3. Expand Control, and then expand Class.
4. Under Class, click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.
5. In the details pane of Registry Editor, on the right side, click UpperFilters.

Note You may also see an UpperFilters.bak registry entry. You do not have to remove that entry. Click UpperFilters only.
* If you see the UpperFilters registry entry in the details pane of Registry Editor, go to step 6.
* If you do not see the UpperFilters registry entry, you still might have to remove the
LowerFilters registry entry. To do this, go to "Step 3: Delete the LowerFilters registry entry."
6. On the Edit menu, click Delete.
7. Click Yes when you receive the following message:
Are you sure you want to delete this value?

The UpperFilters registry entry is removed.
Step 3: Delete the LowerFilters registry entry

1. In the details pane of Registry Editor, on the right side, click LowerFilters.

Note You might see a LowerFilters.bak registry entry. You do not have to remove that entry. Click LowerFilters only.

If you do not see the LowerFilters registry entry, unfortunately this content is unable to help you any more. Go to the "Next Steps" section for information about how you can find more solutions or more help on the Microsoft Web site.
2. On the Edit menu, click Delete.
3. Click Yes when you receive the following message:
Are you sure you want to delete this value?
The LowerFilters registry entry is removed.
4. Exit Registry Editor.

Step 4: Restart your computer
Restart your computer. After you have done this, try to access the CD or DVD drive. If you can access the CD or DVD drive, and if you do not receive an error message, the problem is resolved. You can reinstall your CD or DVD writing or recording software.


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.

Try the brute force method: stop the pc, open its case, disconnect the data cable from the dvd, close the case and reboot, run a registry cleaner,stop the pc, make sure the hard disk is set as master and the dvd set as slave and reconnect the dvd, start the pc.

I have a HP Pavilion 533w That Someone left on my porch (I take old PC's) and they had took the dvd drive and the RAM out of it but left the rest...the power supply was bad so I replaced it and the CPU...


Off the top of my head, I'm not sure if there are any interlocks on that model, but in the absence of any other ideas take a look around the case and storage cage for one. Also go on the HP website , support section and have a look at the faq's for your model...also there is some stuff on Youtube worth a look at! Regards, nicam49

The cd writer/dvd tray on my hp pavilion 533w will not open. When I press the button to open the green light comes on and I can hear a whirring sound but then the light goes out and tray doesn't open....


I understand you can't find that pin hole that's supposed to be there. but just to clarify it's supposed to be on the face of the cd/dvd, not the case. also, just trying to help, did you try opening it WHILE your pc was booting up? maybe try from windows explorer and right click on the drive from that window and try eject or open option.

CD-ROM drive isn't receiving power.


Try a different power connector, if that doesn't work then it's time for a new cd-rom drive.

Pavilion 533w cannot read dvd from DVD ROM drive but CAN read CDs. A restore of Windows XP was performed using HP's non-destructive recovery option.


The combo uses two lasers - one for the dvd and the other for the cd. If the unit works perfectly on cd and at all on dvd then the dvd laser has died and the entire unit with it, it can't be fixed. Buy a new dvd writer and junk the old one.

Can't get the hp cd writer/dvd drawer to open. Pressing on arrow gets no results


You will have small hole on the drive. You may need a neddle to put it in. This will help to eject the disk out. But if this is a regular process then probably the gear mechanism is at fault which needs to be taken to a service center for repair.

PC shuts down while running Windows


Attempt to boot the machine in Safe-Mode.

While powering up continuously hit F8.

You will get a Boot Option Menu, Select Safe-Mode boot

If you can get into safe-mode I would suggest to try doing an online scan, as it sounds like your issue could be related to malware:
