DVD & CD drives not recognized after uninstall Nero
I have a Pioneer DVR-111DBK and Samsung SH-C522C CD-ROM drives, worked well, but after I installed a newer Nero, the DVD won't burn. I guessed it was Nero's fault, so I uninstalled Nero. Then I restarted Windows and the DVD and CD-ROM were not recognized!!! I went to safe mode, and Windows said something is wrong with the registry. I didn't know what to do, so I just reinstall Windows, and it is still the same until now, Windows will not recognize both the DVD and CD drives. I checked the BIOS and it recognizes those devices, I test with a bootable CD, and they both can read and work. So the problem is in the Windows, and I don't know what to do. Please help!
Re: DVD & CD drives not recognized after uninstall Nero
Plain reinstallation of windows won't solve the problem, either you edit your registry to clean it up of all the nero entries or to install windows in clean mode, I mean, you need to reformat or remove windows completely first fron your system.

Not knowing what OS you're running or what version of Nero you have, I'll make a few assumptions. If you're running Vista with Nero 7, Nero doesn't always "play nice" with Vista. It's a memory hog (all video editing programs are) but it tends to hang up a lot and for some reason, runs worse in Vista than in XP. (just my observation)
I've had to re-install Nero twice due to similar problems. (lack of drive recognition, burns ab-ending etc) . You've probably already uninstalled/reinstalled the burner so I would uninstall Nero and reinstall it. Best of luck and please post back with any questions.
