I just installed Win7 and had to go to 'computer' on start menu to find the cd/dvd drive - I thought I wouldn't be able to load my mb drivers because it didn't self-start...but all is well now. Not too bad so far.

AHHHAAA!!!!! finally my drive is back!!, kenny i have already tried that registry edit, worked the first time this happened to me, but didn't work the second time around. thanks for your help anyway. kunuKG, i used a program called registry checker by nero, did the trick for me, try it. i had to run it as the administrator, and if it doesn't work the first time, changed it compatibility to windows xp. ftp://ftp6.nero.com/RegistryChecker.exe
