Basically it means that if the device which is causing the error has added its own custom error text to your Windows system when the device was installed, then when the device encounters an error, you will see the custom error message specific to that device. But if it doesn't have its own custom error message, then Windows uses its own generic error message for devices, which is "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" Microsoft recommends that when this happens, you click "Update Driver" to update the drivers for the device. You can also start the Windows troubleshooting wizard by going to the general properties tab of the device, and clicking on "Troubleshoot".
Before doing this, be sure that you have the correct and most up-to-date versions of the driver(s) for your CD/DVD Drive. You can also try uninstalling and reinstalling the device, using the disk which came with it. When doing this, make sure to restart your computer. This may help clear up the problem.
Finally, you can go to the website of the device's manufacturer, and check their download or support section for current, up-to-date drivers and patch kits.

This COULD solve your issue, although it IS risky...

A) Start Registry Editor (Start, Run and type in regedit then click O.K)

B) Locate the UpperFilters value under the following key in the registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\
{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

C) On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.

D) Locate the LowerFilters value under the same key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\
{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

E) On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.

F) Quit Registry Editor.

G) Restart your computer.

Kind Regards,
Stef

D drive will not load some disc programs in to the computer


If you are saying D drive is your CD/VDVD drive? If you are installing from CD/DVD drive then suddenly stop the installation/setup/loading you must check your disc drive. To check your cd/dvd drive insert a cd or dvd cleaner and start cleaning most of the cleaner has a movie inside of the disc and run for about 10 minutes. Then try again installing/setup/loading the program to your computer. If its still the same, replace your CD/DVD drive with a new cd/dvd drive because your cd/dvd drive is need to be replace. Have a nice day

Samsung DVD writer suddenly not working.


Hi there..

I can understand the issue.

There are 2 ways to fix this up..

FIRST STEP :

Check whether the drive is listed in My Computer or not.
If its not detected then reboot the computer and get into BIOS.
Check whether CD driver is detected in BIOS.
If its not then i'd say please try to swap the cable between HDD & CD drive and restart the computer.
Check whether the computer is booting or not.
If not we can come to the conclusion that the drive is gone bad.

SECOND STEP:

Check whether the drive is listed in My Computer or not.
If the drive is listed in My Computer and still not working.
Then i'd say please go to SERVICES.MSC
Locate for the option IMAPI CD-BURNING service and right click on the option.
Go to properties and start the process and make the startup as Automatic. I've given the screenshot here.. Kindly go through it..

bd4d597.jpg

59c6f91.jpg

Click on start and now you reboot the computer and now check in My Computer whether you see CD Drive.

OR

The next step which we are going to follow up is very important.

Start->Run->regedit

Locate for the upper filter & Lower filter. Here is the location for finding the upper and lower filter..
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

After you click on the 4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318 option take a look on the right side you can find upper & lower filter.

Delete it & Restart the computer and now you are offset..

CAUTION: Use Registry Editor at your own risk. Any change using Registry Editor may cause severe and irreparable damage and may require you to reinstall your operating system. Internet Security Systems cannot guarantee that problems caused by the use of Registry Editor can be solved.

Sony drx820 suddenly not recognized by computer


Does the tray open for you? Re-boot the computer and go into the BIOS and see if it is listed by the BIOS. Did you accidentally remove the hardware? Go into the control panel and add new hardware and see if it detects the drive and re-installs it. Otherwise the drive might have stopped working.

Dvd drive WILL NOT read burnt dvd's or CD's


The problem occurs mostly when your drive is dying. I had the same problem with my laptop writer recently after which it completely stopped writing discs. Contact your support. Sometimes they would ask you to remove the upper and lower filters of an entry in the registry which would sometimes resolve the problem.

You may use any CD/DVD drive lens cleaner to clean the lens as it may be that the lens in the CD/DVD drive is not able to recognize the disc due to accumulation of dust. Next, you may perform System Restore to the time when the CD/DVD drive operated normally. If the issue persists then you may try reinstalling the Operating System.
If the issue persists even after performing all the above mentioned steps then the issue may be Hardware related and the CD/DVD drive may require service.

Things to check
1. See if the drive is identified properly in BIOS, if it is not, reseat all cables and try agian.
2. Can you boot to the drive using a bootable CD (XP CD or such) If the drive functions outside Windows, then it is a software issue. If it doesn't boot to bootable media, then you most likely have a hardware issue.
If you can boot to the CD, then try booting to the safe mode, removing the drive from device manager then remove the upper/lower filters in the registry then reboot in to the normal mode.

CD/DVD DRIVE DOES NOT READ PROPERLY


Really the ONLY thing one can do.. is replace the unit with another know good working one.. IE:New. Usually a GOOD CD/DVD will instantly & always work... it will be picked up by windows and then the appropriate "Drivers" installed. As an IDE CD/DVD is "Generic" it generally doesn't require a "Special" Driver, so windows uses it's "Own" driver. Therefore generally if it's showing as OK in Windows, but is NOT going... then, usually, as I said, it is kaput.. for some reason... usually the laser Diode or Quadrant detector...
