Greetings, Hopefully this is the right forum for this topic.
(Had great luck and help earlier this year with a Spyware problem, thanks to "Da Chew"..
I am running XP pro with SP3.
Norton system works 2004..
A couple of weeks ago I contacted a "bloodhound" virus that infected my registry.
I used the latest Maleware bytes version and cleaned it up, no issues.
But 2 days later when I tied to burn a CD, my Nero 7 software would not see any CD or DVD drives on my PC.
(not sure if the virus clean did anything or if this is just coincidence)
I have Sonic Record now also, this software does not see my drives either.
But my PC see's the drives fine. Can read and play discs no problem.
I went into device manger and tried to detect new hardware, no change.
I did try to reinstall Nero 7, still does not see any CD or DVD drives.
(I even did the Nero "clean" and then tried to re-install)
I installed no new hardware or software. (except the Malwarebytes update)
I have heard there might be some type of "filter" fix in the registry that may fix this but am unsure exactly what needs to be done.
I also read somewhere that by disconnecting any USB devices from my PC then re-booting would help.
(This helped to get my CD drive back for a bit but not my DVD drive, but as soon as everything is plugged back in and you re-start, my drives, once again will not be recognized by my burning software)
Can anyone provide me with a good permanent fix for this issue??
I make tons of CD's and DVD's....
"Chewy" are you out there??? You helped me tons last time around...
