    I have a the common DVD not working problem. I found a possible solution on this tech site but the instructions need to be updated for VISTA. I can not get this to go into reg.
    Here's the possible solution pre-vista:
    If there is an error code in Device Manager for the DVD and CD, try this:
    Fix for missing DVD/CD drives.
    Create a text file with NOTEPAD containing the following data exactly as below and name it FIXCD.REG
    You should have 3 boxes on the bottom in NOTEPAD.
    1)Filename : fixcd.reg
    2)Save as type: all files
    3)Encoding: ANSI
    If you do not change it from txt type to All files type, then the file will actually be fixcd.reg.txt, this won't accomplish the desired result
    Double click on the file and say yes to the merge into registry question.
    ----------------------- Use text after this line, contents of FIXCD.REG -----------------------------
    Need some one to update this for VISTA

    That is the same for Vista so no changes are needed.
