    Ok so my DVD drive in my computer turns on fine, I can open it and put in CD's/DVD ok, but when I go to 'My Computer' it doesn't show up. In addition, CD's that normally autoplay won't automatically play on my screen. Everything has been fine for like 10 months up until today - i tried reboot but I'm not sure what else to do.

    I tried this : Copy the following into a blank Notepad, save it as FIXCD.REG, and then double click on the file to merge it into the registry. Reboot the computer and the drive should be back.


    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}]
    "UpperFilters"=-
    "LowerFilters"=-

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Cdr4_2K]

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Cdralw2k]

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Cdudf]

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\UdfReadr]


    but when i double click it it says: Cannot importe (location) the specified file is not a registry script. You can only import binary registry files from within the registry editor.
