Toshiba Vista Home Basic Matshita UJ 850S (registry keys not working)

Laptop: Toshiba A135-S7404
OS: Vista Home Basic
CD-ROM/RW/DVD-ROM/RW: Matshita UJ850S ATA

My laptop was working fine until I decided to uninstall WinDVD.

At first my dvd rom didn’t show up in explorer’s My Computer however now it shows up as a CD Drive (D:) and only plays audio.

Even when my dvd rom wasn’t showing up in My Computer it was showing up in BIOS, Device Manager, and Disk Manager.

However now it shows up as CD ROM Audio.

I tried the upperfilters and lowerfilters registry I did not have any lowerfilters and contacted Microsoft help. Did not get any.

I tried uninstall and reinstalling it. Did not do anything.

And I even tried cdgone.reg

Before trying any of this I did a system restore and a reg backup. So I go back if necessary.

Anyone have any ideas?

After all this I’m currently reinstalling WinDVD to see if that was problem.
:sad:

If reinstalling doesn’t help, download and run this:
