Cd Drive help please, tried everything

hey all, need help

3 days ago my cd drive stopped playing all types of cds. it seems to of stopped right about the time i unistalled poweriso. these are the things i’ve tried so far:

  • Unistalling the device and restarting windows and drivers are re-installed
  • Deleted the upper and lower filters from the cd registy
  • checked manufactures website for drivers but the device uses the build in drivers.
  • used the microsoft autorun fix
  • tried installing poweriso again and played around with some of the options to see if i left anything on that might of caused a problem in the registry

None of the above have worked. The weird thing is that the only disc my pc will play is the Windows reload cd?? any suggestions please i really dont want to have to reload the whole system, cheers :slight_smile:

heres what cd drive im using:
MATSHITA CD-RW CW-8572 (cd/dvd combo)
Windows xp sp2

Not sure what’s wrong but you could start with reading this M$ KB article.

BTW, IIRC a windoze reload/boot CD has “autostart” command burned on disc.
