    Ok guys, here is my dilema, I have a problems with the CD roms of one computer, I don't what else to do. Some called me saying they were having problems with their CD burner. I went to see what was wrong and saw that the CDRW was not detected by windows, also the additional CDROM, but in the Device manager it did see them, but with the yellow exclamation sing. it gave the code 19 - corrupted regestry. So i did what the troubleshooter told me to do. Uninstall, reinstall, change regestry permisions on the sub key LOCALMACHINE/SYSTEM/CONTROLSET\ENUM, and changed the permisions to the system and nothing. I have no idea what went wrong or what to do next.

    also i tried installing an external usb cdrw and did the same thing to it, i know the external one works.

    Any thoughts? i will really apreciate it.

    A windows 2000 upgraded from 98. I had no choice in that, if it were up to me a would have done a clean install.

    Did you try booting in safemode and choosing the last good configuration?

    Are both drives on the secondary IDE channel? If so, did you double check the bios to be sure the secondary didn't become disabled? Perhaps in device manager you can remove the ide controller and allow windows to reinstall it.
