    I cannot get my Dell Inspiron 1420 Laptop running windows vista to recognize my DVD drive, the light on it blinks, makes some noises but nothing ever shows up in "my computer" however they do show up on my device manager under DVD/CD-ROM Drives and both with yellow flags by them. One is called a "Base System Device" and gives a code 31. The second is called "TSSTcorp DVD+-RW TS-L632H ATA Device" and gives a code 10.

    I found a thread on here that said to go accessories>run>regedit>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE......but when it says to change the upper and lower limits is where i get stuck.....I HAVE NONE! they are nowhere to be found! :confused::confused::confused: The only thing on the right hand side is under the name column>default under the Type column>REG_SZ and under data (where i assume the upper/lower SHOULD be) all it says is "(value not set)"

    If someone could please help me it would be greatly appreciated!! I have searched the web more on how to fix this issue than any research paper and I am at the end of my patience!!
