Cdroms won't work anymore

Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)" This is the message I see when I look at the properties section for my 2 CDroms. I can see Them loaded in the devise manager but, I don’t see them in My Computer. I have checked the bios, deleted and reinstalled them all to no avail. I have even deleted some software to see if there was a conflict…any ideas guys?

  1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit and click OK.
  2. Browse to the following location:


  1. Right-click and delete both the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters registry values. If it only has either the Upperfilters or Lowerfilters value, delete just the one then.
  2. Close the registry editor and restart the machine

I just want to say thank you for the quick response, and also for helping me to resolve my problem. your suggestion worked to the ‘T’. Many thanks.

rarely fails :slight_smile:
