My cd/dvd rw drive suddenly stopped working about a week ago. I checked in Computer and it had disappeared.
I restarted my computer and it said it was installing the drivers for a tssp c rp cp drds ps l 3 h ata drive but it failed. Then i restarted a few more times and until it installed drivers that made it into cd drive (d: ) (my dvd drive was named (e: )) and now after several more restarts and uninstalling of the drive in Device Manager i have yhcfgrw qfot2b41 scsi cd rom device which is basically useless as i need it to play dvds
I’ve already tried deleting upperfilters and lowerfilters with no change. I also deleted itunes. I have no other burning software on my laptop and i’m at the end of my rope now. I don’t want to take it in to be fixed as in my experience they’re pretty useless and end up just reinstalling windows when they get stuck (this has happened to me on 2 occasions)
I use Vista 32 bit. Laptop is only 8 months old
Any help would be great but i’ve been all over the internet and the only fix i can find seems to be deleted upper/lower filters in the registry but as i say that hasn’t helped me in the slightest
I don’t know if this is relevant but the dvd drive i had was an ata drive and the drive that it appears as now is a scsi drive. Is that significant at all?
