I have 2 computers, one with Vista Basic and another with Vista Home Premium. My CD/DVD rom drives do not work. In device manager they have the yellow triangle. The message is that the driver may be corrupted. I tried updating drivers and the message was " the current driver is installed". On one computer I uninstalled the CD/DVD and rebooted . If found the drive and set it up, but I still have the yellow triangle indicating an error. On the one computer I also had a 'ready boost' drive and that showed up under CD/DVD drives in device manager and it also had an error. On the Vista Basic, drive shows a ATAPI DVD C DH52C1P ATA Drive, the driver is MS cdrom dated 6/21/06 6.0.6000.16386. On the Vista Home Premium, drive shows as TSST Corp CD/DVDW TS-H652D ATA Device, driver shows as C:/Windows/System32/Drivers/cdrom.sys also MS 6.0.6001.18000 (longhorn_rtm.080118-1840) . . . this is the one I uninstalled and reinstalled.

There may be a common thread here. My Son got 'Spore' for xmas and tried loading it on the Vista Basic but the drive didn't respond. Subsequent disks did not respond either. I thought there was a drive problem. I then let him try to load 'Spore' on my computer, and again the drive didn't respond.

Maybe it was a coincidence, I don't know. How can I get the correct drivers back and installed so that I can have use of my ROMS.

You usually don't bother with drivers as they're plug and play. Go to your Device Manager and locate the drives and remove/uninstall them and reboot the computer.
Windows should redetect them

Tried it but it didn't do any good. Still the same problem.

I tried a restore point and it didn't work. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, didn't work. I don't know with the "upper and lower filters" are but I will go to the microsoft site and give it a try.

If you are going to disable the upper and lower filters this will involve making changes in the registry. Because a mistake can cause severe problems you should back up the registry before making any changes.

Backup Your Registry with ERUNT
  • Please use the following link and scroll down to ERUNT and download it.
    http://aumha.org/freeware/freeware.php
  • For version with the Installer:
    Use the setup program to install ERUNT on your computer
  • For the zipped version:
    Unzip all the files into a folder of your choice.
Click Erunt.exe to backup your registry to the folder of your choice.

Note: to restore your registry, go to the folder and start ERUNT.exe

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
