Hi, the error code that you have is a known issue from Microsoft that needs a registry tweaks. Error code means "Windows failed to start (code 10)". You can click on this link for your reference http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929461/en-us

To resolve this problem, remove the affected filter drivers. To do this, follow these steps:1. Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit in the Programs list.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
2. Locate, and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Caution There can be many instances of the registry subkey that is mentioned in step 2. You must make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the UpperFilters and the LowerFilters values. To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the Default data value is DVD/CD-ROM and the Class data value is CDROM.
3. In the right pane, right-click UpperFilters, and then click Delete.
4. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the UpperFilters registry entry.
5. In the right pane, right-click LowerFilters, and then click Delete.
6. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the LowerFilters registry entry.
7. Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.

This will surely help you resolve your issue. Good Luck!!!

Thanks

When I try to view CD in the drive I get the message "insert CD in drive." A tested CD is already in the drive. The CDROM drive (Sumung SH-152A) works correctly when a bootable CD is...


Buy a new compatible Samsung DVDRW (better than CD). Cost only about $20.
or else, try this

In Device Manager, delete CDROM driver and close it.

a. Click on Start --> Run --> and type in 'regedit' followed by the enter key

b. Expand the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" key (looks like a folder) by double clicking it (or
clicking the "+" next to it.)

c. Expand the "SYSTEM" Key

d. Expand the "CurrentControlSet" Key

e. Expand the "Control" Key

f. Expand the "Class" Key

g. Look for a key containing the following string of letter and numbers:
{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

h. Highlight this key

i. On the right hand side you are looking for "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" under the "Name" column, once you find these delete them by right clicking on them and choosing "delete"

j. Exit the registry

Reboot let Windows XP reinstall generic CDROM driver.

Samsung cdrom sh-152a Device manager says this is OK, CDROM flashes on boot, when selected it asked me to install a CD when one is actually there. Any ideas


Hi,
You may have : - Dirt cd rom lens ( please clean it with cd cleaner ) - Scratch cd ( please check your cd) or wrong format cd? please try other cd to check your cd room - Or do you have a defective lens ( step 1 and 2 above will led you to know this) - Or maybe do you encounter problem during install the driver ( if yes, you need to re install the driver)
Regards,
Jay

My driver for sony cd rom cdu5211 is lost and now my CD ROM is not reading any type of CD.


It depends on what Operating System you are using.Windows Xp have all the drivers for Sony and other brands of CD rom drives,same with Vista and win7.Just go to the control panel,click the hardware manager and the drop down menu will show the hardwares of your CPU.Look for the cdrom driver and see if it has the yellow baloon with exclamation-meaning it has an error or the driver is not installed.You can go to sony website and type in your cdrom drive model and it will give you the driver for it,download the software.If the software is detected and ask you to install it,click "yes".After the process is done,test it by putting in a music or picture cd,make sure the drive is clean too cause reasons why cdroms don't read is because of dirty laserheads.Buy yourself a cdrom lens cleaner disk,it helps me many times.

You have one of two problems....

1 - The driver for the cdrom drive has become corrupted somehow and needs replacing. Go out to the ACER website and download the cdrom driver specific to your make and model of computer (it is IMPORTANT that you provide specific information in the window boxes to get the correct driver for your hardware.) Once you have the new driver, uninstall the device from within Device Manager. Reboot the computer and when Windows proclaims it has found a new device, select to install the device driver from a specific location. Browse to the folder where you expanded the drivers and let Windows install and update the drivers from that location. OR the other possibility is....

2 - Your cdrom drive has died. Remedy, have it replaced.

My cd drive will read cds but not dvds i try to istall somethig it wont work


Hi dkush29306,

while the other two posters have pointed out the obvious, that CDROM drives only read CDs, and that you need a DVD drive to read DVDs, i would like to add something to this.

I will asume you have a CDROM COMBO Drive, that *should* play CDRs and DVDs.

if you find it does spin CDs up and read them, but not DVDs then i might be able to offer some suggestions.

firstly, make sure there is no software conflicts (like two CD Writing softwares trying to use the CD Drive at the same time.. ). you shouldnt have to worry about drivers for the CDROM, as the default OS ones should suffice. but they may be corrupt. you could goto Device Manager if you are on Windows, and uninstall and reinstall the driver for the CDROM. it should find it automatically in the install wizard.

ok at this point i don't see how software could cause any other issue , so we should look at it being a hardware issue:

if you have the ability, try changing the IDE Ribbon Cable that connects the CDROM to the Motherboard. if that doesnt work, try changing which plug in the IDE cable the CDROM plugs into. these plugs usually have a blue plug at one end (motherboard end), and there is two plugs at the other end, or master and slave. keep the jumper pin on the CDROM set to Cable Select, so you dont need to change it to slave, when its plugged into the slave port, or master pin if set to the master port.

finally, if none of that helps (and it probably won't ) you might find that the actual fault is due to the laser in the CDROM not focusing tightly enough and therefore cannot read the data on a DVD ROM because of this. the only way to tell if this is ok or not, is to plug it into another computer and see if it can read DVDs.

you might just be better off spending 20-50$ and buying a new CDROM Combo drive from your local computer hardware store.

Software drivers needed


You'll be glad to know you do not need drivers to install a cd or dvd drive, Windows has the controllers built in the software. Just fit it in your desktop and Windows will automatically install it for you. Please rate solution.
