Thanks for your help guys, but I have bad news.
Welcome to the Forum.
Ensure that you donâ€™t have any Virtual Drive software programs similar to Alcohol 120% and/or Daemon Tools installed. If so Totally and Completely remove any and ALL Virtual Drive software programs. Then in Device Manager under â€œDVD/CD-ROM Drivesâ€ remove ALL Devices that are listed. Then ReBoot your computer. When you restart your Computer your â€œDVD/CD-ROM Drivesâ€ should be correctly Re-Installed.
Thanks for the welcome.
Anyways, I removed Daemon Tools. Then I unistalled both DVD Roms from Device Manager and rebooted. When the Windows restarted it found both of my DVD roms, but twice. So now I am on the start again.
Also, I tried uninstalling my Secondary IDE channel from IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers, but it didn’t help, either.
Remove your drives via Device Manager.
Also try running something like ASC3.
See [B]ASC3 Free[/B]
To access Device Manager.
Right click on My Computer > click on Manage > click on Device Manager > click + by side of DVD/CD Drives > right click on actual drives > go to uninstall.
Then reboot & let Windows rediscover your drives.[/QUOTE]
Thanks for the tip, but it didn’t excatly help me.
ASC3 found some things, I fixed them all, but it didn’t change anything. Also, I said, I tried unistalling my DVD/CD drives, but when the Windows rediscovered them, nothing changed. I’ve also tried disabling them, and then enabling them again when the system rebooted, but it didin’t change a thing. The only new thing is this:
When I disabled them, the two real drives really went “offline”, but the fake ones stayed “enabled” like nothing happened.
