  • help... CD/DVD is gone...

    Out of the blue, for no reason... i opened "my computer" this AM, and noticed that my CD Rom and my DVD Rom are gone...not listed... so I go into device manager and see both listed, and properly named, but with explication points on them...telling me there not working, it advises I uninstall them, then add new hardware... i do, but the hardware drivers can't be found, so they don't install...

    any idea whats going on here? is there a way to bring them back? (I tried restore to a earlier point, they were still gone).

    I tried getting updates from DELL, all they have is flash updates, but they can't find the devices to flash update.

    Lucky for me I download most of my games now, but i just got the 505 version of Armed Assault YESTERDAY on DVD...I was hoping to install and play tonight, damn it. ;)

        Take a look at this page: http://extended64.com/blogs/andre/ar...1/07/1630.aspx and http://support.microsoft.com/default...;EN-US;Q270008

        Be very careful when looking through the registry for the key. You'll see a bunch of them that look similar. The one you are looking for is usually towards the top of the list.

        See similar stuff at work quite often. For us, it has been people installing iTunes that came with an iPod Shuffle that the company gave out to a certain division with marketing talk on it.
