I'm unable to use the cd-rw drive. One day it was fine and and when I tried to burn a CD the next time it just wouldn't work. I had installed and ran Deep Burner as my burning program. It worked fine for a while then stopped. The drive won't read a cd either now. What can I do? I checked the hardware profile and it says it's working, but it's not.

The computer I'm refering to is running windows 2000 pro. Will these steps still work?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

there's no auto guided registry edit for W2k only a manual one

The best all round all-time free burning program has a builtin tool for showing the filters and editing them
