    They worked fine yesterday. Today they are not showing up. I uninstalled the drivers and restarted the PC and drivers were back but the had ! next to them. I opened it up reseated all plugs and still no go. I just remember I uninstalled Nero 6 yesterday maybe that threw out a necessary file.

    This fixed it:

    1. Click on START button, the click on RUN
    2. Enter REGEDIT and press enter
    3. When REGEDIT starts, open up the following folders
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    SYSTEM
    CurrentControlSet
    Control
    Class
    {4D36E965-E325 -11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
    4. After clicking on {4D36E965-E325 -11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} you should see two settings on the right-hand side:
    "Upperfilters"
    "Lowerfilters"
    Click on each of them, press DELETE and click YES.

    Then close REGEDIT, shutdown & restart your PC

    No because I disabled it so it would run faster. But deleting the Lowerfilters fix it right up

    Is everything hooked up ok in your case? Sometimes the damnedest things will happen and something will come loose. Happened to me before.
