Hi I got up this morning and found my computer unable to read either of my CD rom drives. I rebooted, then uninstalled both drivers. It was able to re-install them but they still had the same problem.

Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)

I checked the connections for them and they're fine (the damn things even open and close still.)

Can anyone help me out with this?
Thanks.

Have you recently uninstalled any CD-writing software? If so, you may need to edit the registry
Start > Run > regedit

Important: Make a backup (export) before making any changes to the registry

Remove the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters values from this registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ Class \ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Then reboot.
