i am very new at this kinda tech stuff, so please bear with me...
i have a sony dwd22a and a generic dvd device on my computer. i tried to burn something with nero, and it couldn't find the device, however, when i put a blank cd into the drive the computer recognised it. I rebooted the computer, just in case it was nero that was being the problem (it was a new install), and when i booted up the computer wouldn't recognise either of my drives. i looked in device manager, and it said that the drivers for the devices were installed fine, but it couldn't find the hardware device. i deisables/enabled the drives and checked again and it asaid that the dwd22a's registry file was damaged or incomplete, and it still couldn't find the other drive.
any help would greatly appreciated.
