    hi, ive got a problem

    I have two drives:
    Toshiba DVD-Rom
    Iomega CDRW

    and they are not working in XP anymore, they worked perfectly when i upgraded to XP about 3 weeks ago, now they arent "responding" Device manager says ! - Troubleshooter says it might be a corrupt key in the registry. Ive tried everything that i can think of, i dont really want to use system restore tbh.

    can anyone help me on this?

    PC Specs:

    Amd 1.3gz CPU
    384mb DDR Mem
    2x HDDs
    Win XP Home Edition

    Go into device manager and remove both of them .


    XP will detect them again and should be all ok ..

    System restore is a really good tool for situations like this :)

    already done that, i find the new hardware but cant install it, ive checked both manufacturers sites, but they dont need new drivers, it said something about a damaged value in the reg. anyone know if XP has a regfix program? or where can i download it?

    correct, i installed nero, burned a coupla times, then it didnt reconise anymore, so i uninstalled nero.
