Re: System wont recognize DVD drive
Nothing like a "late" response... If anyone happens to read this thread,
I have had problems with Vista Home Premium not recognizing my DVD/RW
drive. I had searched the net for help by reading many forums, and I
found a successful fix!
My computer is 2 months new, dual core, 350gb h/d 3 gb RAM yadda,
yadda, yadda... a nice Gateway. Anyway, I bought and installed Print
Shop 22, searches yielded unfortunate results... They said the program
was not compatible with Vista. I decided to try anyway, at the end of
the install, the program stated that the program was incompatible with
Vista.... I continued.
The program has run fine with zero problems, BUT, after install, my
computer will not recognize my DVD/RW! I restored back to a point before
loading the Print Shop 22 software. Viola! My DVD drive is back up... I
reloaded the Print Shop 22 software and 48 hours later the DVD is not
recognized again. Okay long story, short... The fix is, open up regedit,
Open it and find the line the specifies an "upper filter" and/or "lower
filter" and delete them! reboot and see what comes of it... It worked
for me and still does, good luck!
