Hello. I would greatly appreciate assistance with this issue. I too was unable to find the drive for the CD/DVD. I have tried all the recommended solutions from going to â€œregeditâ€ to remove the upper and lower filters (filters do not appear) I have gone into device manager, however, itâ€™s not showing there so I canâ€™t uninstall and then reinstall. I even went to the BIOS and did see the CD/DVD listing per someoneâ€™s suggestion. Iâ€™ve tried Microsoft Fix It, which by the way is how I found out about MYCE.
I followed every resolution Microsoft offered and still nothing. I should say that Microsoft Fix It did notice that the drive was missing, however, they did not have a solution for it.
I have replaced the CD/DVD drive and still nothing.
The computer is originally Vista Home Premium, and per Microsoft Upgrade Advisor, I uploaded to Windows 7 Ultimate. When the system was Vista, the drive could not be found and I started using an external drive, however, it became problematic when I needed the USB drive.
Bottom line, I couldnâ€™t find it in Vista and now in Windows 7.
I tried Option 2:
Click on Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Right click Command Prompt -> Run as administrator.
Paste the following line and hit enter afterwards
<CODE>bcdedit /set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS</CODE>
After doing this, I received an error message stating that this was the wrong syntax.
One more thing, is there such a thing as downloading a DVD/CD driver to replace the one that canâ€™t be found? And if so, does anyone know of a reputable source?
I would greatly appreciate some assistance with this. If I could not use an external drive, it would be great. Thanks in advance!!!
