:thumbsup:
I wonder if anyone can save me from having to install Windows?

My problem is that my 2 DVD drives have disappeared! Explorer does not see them and device manager has exclamation marks by them the properties reveal the message ‘Your registry might be corrupted. (Code 19)’.
I have tried uninstalling them, on reboot Windows says it has installed two new devices, but they are still not available.

I have resorted to a program called Registry Fix, but to no avail.


My System is as follows

OS Name Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional
Version 5.0.2195 Service Pack 4 Build 2195
System Type X86-based PC
Processor x86 Family 6 Model 10 Stepping 0 AuthenticAMD ~2074 Mhz

BIOS Version BIOS Date: 08/06/04 17:47:54 Ver: 08.00.09

By the way the PC will boot from the Windows 2000 Professional cd.

Any ideas folks? ….. please

Did you try using the troubleshooter in the device manager or reinstalling the drivers?

Don't know for sure what you have done. But go to http://www.mdgx.com/. You may be able to find a reg fix there. Had the same problem with my cd burner when I uninstalled nero and easy. Boy was it a mess. Found a reg fix there. Cleared up every thing. Plus any other help you need. Find answers there about all windows.
