DvD burner disappeared in Windows

#1

Hi!
I have the Samsung 18x writemaster and for some reason it has disappeared in windows. When I reboot the PC, It shows up in POST. As soon as I get to windows it is gone. Anyone have any ideas? It is the only IDE drive I have in my system and set as the Primary Master.

I assume that it’s also on the end connection on the cable.

Also you might need to clear the upper & lower filters in the registry.

Copy the following to a text file , naming it with an extension of .reg & then double click on it and add it to the registry. Hopefully on reboot it should be there.

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}]
