i think this would qualify as my stupidest moment ever. yup.

i'd done this before. reference this post: http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/322107-cd-dvd-burner-drive-not-working-please-help-_.html

however, reinstalling the program shouldn't have been a problem, as the lowerfilters and upperfilters were deleted. that's what the site said that i found the original information on.

upon reinstallation, and perhaps it was because it'd been too long since i'd deleted them, cakewalk reinstalled both filters and made a backup of the upperfilters.

i.e., i had:
lowerfilters
upperfilters
upperfilterscakewalkcopy

so, upon finding that i no longer could use any burning software, but like before my computer would read discs and still knew it had a cd drive, i went back to said post and did the steps over again.

except this time, it didn't work. o__o

after some struggling with it, i decided to delete the upperfilterscakewalkcopy as well. (i thought i'd done that originally, too.)

i reinstalled sonic (the original burning software that came with my laptop that i never took off) and took of pyro for good. but now, it still won't recognize the burning capabilities of my cdrom drive.

i have attached an image that includes the portion of the registry i'm talking about, for a good visual.

any help would be greatly appreciated, as the computer wouldn't allow me to simply restore it to a time right before my moment of stupidity.
