:thumbsup: hello again. Today i done a update check and says all is up to date but there is a yellow triangle with a ! on: HL-DT-ST-DVD-RW SSA-H11N ATA Device, 6TO4 Adapter, isatap.{403DE9A8-FCEC-41BD-9D8A-2EB65472C478}, and isatap.{489506EA-3EBC-4C8C-9235-6378249B21C4} (has this one twice). Also have one more question on my computer it has eMachine recovery center and it has the option of doing a factory system recovery if i do this will it fix the problem and will it still have the main programs on it like windows vista. I really dont want to lose what programs i do have but they can always be reloaded as long as i still able to get on computer and have vista. I just dont know what to do to get back my cd and dvd reading and writing. thanks

Go to Device Manager...Start/Run...type devmgmt.msc and hit OK...uninstall anything listed under the CD/DVD drive section. Reboot and XP should automatically install those drives.

Click on the plus signs (+) next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE then plus sign by SYSTEM then plus sign by CurrentControlSet then plus sign by control then the plus sign by class then clicked on the folder {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} then if there is any: UpperFilters, LowerFilters, UpperFilters.bak, or LowerFilters.bak right click them and delete. Close and reboot computer. First time I did this it didnt work so me myself i went back and redid it and it worked. I now i a dvd/cd deal in my computer and can burn and read again.

Wow,

If you really don't know much about computers, congrats on a successful registry edit.


If you messed it up you could have fried everything! :thumbsup:

Nice job and thanks for the feedback :thumbsup:.

Looks like one of Chewy's favorite remedies, IIRC.

There are allot of entries in the registry if deleted can at the least stop your from logging into windows (Userinit.exe) and at worst render your operating system as wasted space on your hard drive (forcing a repair install). Congratulations on a successful edit my first one killed the operating system :thumbsup: . Always remember to save a copy of your registry or at the least write down what your deleting so if it doesn't work you can use a program like Bart PE to restore what you deleted. Thanks for posting your solution. If someone in the future has the same problem they can search our forums and find out how you fixed it :flowers:
