    The following entries have been deleted from my registry:

    HKEY_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Con
    trol\File System\CDFS


    Windows shows the cd drives as working properly but the drives won't recognize any discs.

    I don't have a backup of my registry and the system restore is unable to restore to any of my save points.

    Any suggestions on how I can fix this issue? I can't access my Win XP Install Disc to restore the registry. I tried an external cd drive and it's doing the same thing. I could manually enter the registry information if I knew what it needed to be.

    Thanks in advance for any help / suggestion.

    It's on three of my systems.

    Here is the entry from one:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem\CDFS]
    "PrefetchTail"=hex:80,00,00,00
    "CacheSize"=hex:ef,05,00,00
    "Prefetch"=hex:68,04,00,00

    Hope it helps.
