I tweaked my startup options referencing descriptions, and going a step further, using autoruns.exe. I know, I know, I really thought I had this thing tuned well. Sooo . . . in "My Computer" the (2) drives do not display. Inserting a disc does nothing. In the "Computer Management" drop down I find yellow circle exclamations over the drive icons. The "Device status" states:
A driver (service) for this device has been disabled. An alternate driver may be providing this functionality. (Code 32)
Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.
I have tried to uninstall / reinstall with out success. Looking further I have found reference to dependencies on Logical disc Mgr. , Plug and Play, and RPC. My fear is that I MAY have deleted an "RPC" if found, based on the description in the start up list entry.
Your thoughts PLEASE.
