Driver Insanity

I am having the weirdest problem and can think of nobody else to turn to right now.

My motherboard is a GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 and I am having a serious issue with my Lite-On internal blu-ray reader/burner ( model IHBS112 )

One day it just vanished from My Computer. Poof.

It can be seen in Device Manager as ATAPI iHBS112 1 ATA Device … if I try and update the drivers, whelp, its says they ARE updated …

… according to drivers from 2006???

Lite-On does not suppoer drivers since the SATA link is supposed to be all I need. Uninstalling/Reactivating the device does nothing. It just appears back in the same useless state it was in before.

I get this error ~

Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)

Is this a virus? I suspect I need to load windows drivers to USB drive and just re-install everything, but I was curious if anybody knew about this ‘kind’ of nonsense and what it might be.

It says my CD/DVD drive can not be found … yet it shows up in Device Manager …

If the automtaic solution doesn’t work this can often be fixed by manually deleting upper/lower filters as described here (Resolution):
The CD drive or the DVD drive does not work as expected on a computer that is running Windows Vista (also works on Windows XP & 7).

Reboot and check the drive.

It worked! I can’t thank you enough! What causes that sort of weird/obscure problem?!

Typical windooze mayhem.
