DVD Burner missing in explorer windows XP

Postby rascard2007 » Wed Mar 18, 2015 7:47 am

I have a DVD Burner LG MODISC that was working fine some days ago, yesterday when I open the explorer I noticed just the two partitions of the HDD and a virtual CD/DVD drive created with the miscrosoft Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel v2.0.1.1

I search in Devices under the control panel and there is no reference to the DVD drive

the drive is working because it is show in the bios and I reboot the PC put my XP SP3 bootable CD and I was able to work with it

So seems to be a windows problem

Yes, its a windows problem. A program has added upper and lower filters oin the registry which you need to delete.Check this out.
I have been programming on computers since the ZX81.
I am an apprentice trained Electronics Engineer with qualifications to back it up.
I have been repairing computers since 1996.
Yet to some people I still know nothing...
