My computer just shut off last night....maybe a power surge, but the lights didn't flicker & I use a surge protector power bar.

Anyways, the next day I realized my CD/RW wasn't recognized by the system. Upon scanning for updated drivers....XP says the CD driver is corrupt or missing.

I returned the CDRW for a new one.....connected it as a master & slave, tried updating plug and play hardware....no luck.

It is an LG-GCE-8520b.

The old burner was from the same manuf. so there shouldn't be any conflicts....just no recognition now for some reason.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have never had to install a driver for a CDrom or CDRW drive before...............never heard of any of them requiring drivers to work before.

Good luck,

Well if the bios sees it then that's all he should have to do is boot into safe mode and remove any CD-Roms that are in the device manager and reboot............IMHO

FOUND the FIX

Message from user @ SiliconGuide.com:

I had similar problem on Win2000: after install NERO 5.5 Packet Writer (Samsung-only edition) my CD-R/W device went to code-31 (Windows has disabled). I searched the web & found out from http://www.hauppauge.com/html/pvrfaq.htm that there are 2 reg keys that screw the device, I removed them both and re-scaned for PnP (or rebooted) after removing the device & all was well. The keys are: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325 -11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} - "Upperfilters" and "Lowerfilters".

For Newbies:

1. Click on START button, the click on RUN
2. Enter REGEDIT and press enter
3. When REGEDIT starts, open up the following folders
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
SYSTEM
CurrentControlSet
Control
Class
{4D36E965-E325 -11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
4. After clicking on {4D36E965-E325 -11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} you should see two settings on the right-hand side:
"Upperfilters"
"Lowerfilters"
Click on each of them, press DELETE and click YES.

Then close REGEDIT, shutdown & restart your PC

Try another IDE cable and make sure that it's hooked up to pin one properly on the motherboard and on the drive.
