    Well the thing is ...the CD-drive seems not to work in wondows.

    i tryed everything i knew of restart, check up the conectors on the machine, go to add new hardware to see if something was wrong ..
    And there is the part that started to creep me >.< ...it said i dont even have a cd drive! O_O i mean i tryed to tell it to search for new hardware and it didnt find anything at all So i wanted to do it manualy but windows just dosent have my Cd-Rw drivers in them (but because it should have them in in the regular windows driver settings i can't download them from anywhere >_< )

    Any ideas ...i heard to delete some specific reg keys should work but i dont think i got all of those that i should so i skiped that thought

    Oh and the CD-RW works because i tested it on my brothers side of the comp ... ( we have two disks and on one there is linux and on the other windows ...and in linux it works like a charm so nothing wrong with the CDRW-thingy )

    Help ish loved T.T

    This can sometimes be a quick fix with regedit. Here are the registry keys to delete:

    Delete "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\UpperFilters"

    Delete "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\LowerFilters"

    Delete "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Cdr4_2K\"

    Delete "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Cdralw2k\"

    Delete "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Cdudf\"

    Delete "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\UdfReadr\"

    Not all of these entries may be showing of course.

    Then reboot.
