    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

    Uninstalling Nero likely messed with the drivers . . have you reinstalled them? Right clifck on it, select properties and then reinstall driver . . they are likely still around and the system will find them.

    Got it! This is what I did:

    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
    I only had lowerfilters though
