I just got a new computer running Vista, and foolish me thought that maybe the bugs with AnyDVD would have been worked out by now, but I guess not. I installed it, it worked twice, and then said that my trial period was over (even though it was registered) Now since I uninstalled it because it wouldn't work any more, the dvd drive is not showing up. I remember that I have to change something in regedit, but I don't quite remember how to get to the right file once I open regedit. Can anyone help?? :huh:

First try this fix to restore your drive: http://www.dougknox.com/xp/scripts_desc/xp_cd_dvd_fix.htm

If you prefer a .reg file rather than a .exe, here's a link to a direct download: http://www.aumha.org/downloads/cdgone.zip
