CD/DVD Rom Issue
I've tried searching for a similar issue to mine, but can find nothing that
works thus far so I'll post this in hope that someone can help.

My DVD/CD-ROM Drive is a TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-S203B SCSI CdRom Device (as
listed in Device Manager) and will no longer burn anything.
Due to my lack of experience with Vista, previously I had installed Nero 6
and 7 (at different times) and Roxio MyDVD8 and believe this to be where the
error began.

I had previously had the Error31 code, but SystemRestore fixed that.

Now, when I look at Driver Details for my DVD Drive, there is only the
'cdrom.sys' driver listed. Is that all that's required?

Under IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers I have 'ATA Channel 0 and 1' and 'Standard
Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller'.
I have 2 SCSI HD's and my SCSI DVD Drive and 1 IDE HD.

Under Storage Controllers I have 'ATI AHCI Compatible RAID Controller', 'ATI
RAID Console' and 'Microsoft iSCSI Initiator'.
Do I need all of those?

Apologies, but I know not a lot about computers nowadays. Technology has
moved on without me.

Mmmkay, I've been through and deleted what was there in the filters
previously. No Upperfilters were present, but I had a Lowerfilters and
Lowerfilters_1, both of which I have deleted.

Devcon runs in 32-bit mode on Vista but not 64-bit and here's what it
returned:

" SCSI\CDROM&VEN_TSSTCORP&PROD_CDDVDW_SH-S203B\4&1263B6B0&0&000800
Name: TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-S203B SCSI CDRom Device
Setup Class: (4d36e965-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318) CDROM
Controlling service: cdrom
1 matching device(s) found. "

I attempted to use Devcon to install the proper filters, but my use of
syntax, or something else caused it to say "devcon failed".

I'm going to attempt to locate a good all-round Burning Package soon, but I
don't have the money to buy anything hefty. Once it's installed I'll see if
it causes any other problems.

Re: CD/DVD Rom Issue
OK, I can now burn DVD's etc in Windows Vista.
I can create Video DVD's with a bit more jiggery-pokery than I would like
(Creating the actual DVD ISO on an XP machine and burning it using ISO
Recorder on my Vista machine).

But, after deleting the Upper/Lower Filters in the RegEdit and rebooting
numerous times, none of these entries have re-appeared.

I installed Roxio Easy Media Creator 10, as this is apparently
Vista-compatible, and in the Home Page of the program it says "No Drive
Detected".

I went back to the RegEdit and I had "LowerFilters" (with no Value) and
"LowerFilters_1" with a value of "PxHlpa64" (or similar spelling). No
UpperFilter whatsoever.
Presuming this to be the problem (as 99% of these problems occur because of
this) I deleted both LowerFilter entries and rebooted.
Now I have no entries, and EMC still does not detect a drive.

I can boot from BIOS using the Vista Install DVD, I can run the install DVD
from Vista itself, I can play CD's.

I uninstalled EMC10, and removed the DVD Drive from Device Manager, then
rebooted. No Change.

I reinstalled EMC10. No Change.

Anyone got any other ideas (which don't involve re-installing Vista)?
If it comes to reinstalling Vista, I'm getting my money back and rolling
back to XP.
At least that was somewhat user-friendly and understandable, lol.
