hi i bought a dvd burner a while back from newegg and it used to work until it just broke down, so i then returned it and got a new one but it still will not be regcognized. ITS NOT EVEN RECOGNIZED WHEN I GO TO MY COMPUTER!!! i put in a disk the green light goes on and i hear something spinning but then it stops becoming green and nothing else happens, the disc i use works fine on my other computer but thats my parents and it wont work on mine.

i really didnt get any help from that site because this is a new computer that i have BUILT. and it tells you to check which setting is on the previous drive, but i only have one.

Does it have an error code and a yellow ! in Device Manager? If so, try this.

Download CDgone, right click on the downloaded file and choose Extract All, then double-click on cdgone.reg Say "Yes" to the merge question and then reboot. See if the drives have returned. You may have to re-install CD burning applications, since they're the ones that tinker with the filter setting in the registry that caused the drives to disappear.
