Can't remember exactly the last time I used it though, but I know it was working less than a month ago.

Wouldn't care, i work with computers... but im clueless as to why it would randomly not show up unless it was broke. needless to say if its all connected as bios detects it. Had this homebuilt PC for over 3 years and never an issue until now.. (I guess i can put my warranty to 3 years) lol.

The drive is not showing up in My computer, or computer management. I dunno if it even makes a difference if its either.

Just uninstalling nero atm.

I tried that microsoft program, i get an error when it looks for fixing it. Nothing identifiable stated, just an error "please try again later"

Nero is still uninstalling. God i had programs that take longer to uninstall.. where's the sense in that!

is it a dell machine? my brother had this issue and needed to install a reg key for it to show up

it's more than likely your upp and lower filters.

download imgburn and open/run then tools/ filter driver load order and remove the upper and lower filters the reboot computer

No filters to remove, I done that via the registry before hand.

I'm guessing only a fresh reinstall will fix it.

BTW, it's not a dell machine, it's one i built a few year ago

Cheers for the help anyway!

It's not specific to dell even if a google search indicates that. If you removed them via reg then and still no good you should uninstall the actually controller it's connected to you could try ImgBurn tools menu again this time using reset DMA. If that says it can't find any controller to reset do it manually in device manger (not the same as uninstalling your DVD ROM drive from there)

reboot your machine afterwards though

make sure to change ide cable as well even though bios picks it up. which drive is it btw....

uninstall Incd packet writing software/ deamon tools/ sptd/ alcohol 120/ anydvd/ and any other virtual software in use to mount cds/dvd


see if you can find a tool that completely removes nero / properly
