My DVD-Drive wont work properly....





Parkour_Jarrod
i have this major problem that my DVD-Drive doesnt want to read any disk put in there properly or at all i have all teh drivers i need the cords are all right and i cant find one virus or spyware thats erroring it, i heard my friend at school say that iTunes stops teh DVD-Drive working is it true that my itunes is doing this?

No, check the jumpers on the back. Is it SATA or IDE?

Make sure the jumpers are set to cable select. Is it on a seperate IDE cable from your hard disk? If it is, make sure it is at the end of the cable.
Parkour_Jarrod
well its not Sata its IDE how do i make sure the jumpers are in the right spots?

On the DVD drive it will have a diagram of what position the jumper should be for master cable-select and slave.

First - Excuse my English.

Normally some software causes a change not allowed in at the registration for the CD / DVD

Just follow the steps to try to restore.
(works with both Windows XP and Vista.)

1 - Create a restore point in the system.
2 - Access the editor of the Windows registry.
3 - Access the value:

- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ Class \ (4D36E967-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318)

- On the right side of the screen search for:

"Lowerfilter" or "UpperFilter"

(Not always appear the two values, in some cases only 1 of them)

- If you find the values, delete them.
- Close the Registry Editor, open the Device Manager by the panel of controls.
- Remove the CD / DVD drive and restart the system.
- When you restart Windows, the system will reinstall the drives, make sure they return to work.

Very Happy

Obviously this isn't the problem. He JUST installed this DVD drive, why would a program edit the registry of a DVD drive that did not exist. This is a new installation of the DVD drive and it's likely the jumpers like I said. I'm waiting for a response back from him.
