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.
