    I have a cdrw and a dvdrw drive both were working fine. Now they both show up in the device manager but show the astericks saying the drivers have been loaded but hardware is not found. But they do not show up in the My computer folder or when accessing from a program except cdrwin. I uninstalled the devices and reinstalled and I also uninstalled and unplugged and restarted and then plugged back in and restarted again. And still the same message. None of my cd recording decices work except for cdrwin. For some odd reason this program recognizes the drives and records too.

    Please someone help with this cause I am stumped. I tried to use a system restore point but like always they always come back and tell my that it can't restore from that point.

    Any suggestions is much abliged. Thanks.

    stemed from this: I was formating a cdrw with dla program from my dvd rw drive. The drive never complete finished and got hung and I had to restart my computer because it locked up. I think that this may have been the start of the problem. This happened yesterday.
