Is My drive Messed up?

Hi guys i was recently doing a backup using Nero, I left it running while i went to work, when I came back (bout 9 hrs later) my PC was froze at 95% and the drive’s red ligth was blinking, I proceeded to reboot the PC the my windows did not displayed the drive in the “My Copmputer” widow but its showing in the “device manager” window, Ive updated the nForce drivers and nothig. Can I get a little help before I buy another DVD burner? THX

PS i got a dw1620

Hi it look like just the windows registry mess up. You might want to get rid of the Upper/Lower filters in the registry and most of the time should fix the Optical drive problem that disappeared from “my computer”.

Registry key to look for:

The keys are: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class{4D36E965-E325 -11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} - and look for “Upperfilters” and “Lowerfilters” on the right panel

and the what?

dude thanks i deleted that entry and worked thank u guys are the best
