    Reboot & xp should install the needed drivers. No need for a system restore, yet. :)

    Have you had a look in device manager to what is going on?

    Delete both of them in Device Manager and reboot.

    CD-ROM Access Is Missing and Messages Cite Error Code 31, Code 32, Code 19, or Code 39 After You Remove Easy CD Creator in Windows XP

    Resolution
    WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

    To resolve this behavior, follow these steps:

    1. Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
    2. Locate the UpperFilters value under the following key in the registry:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
    3. On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.
    4. Locate the LowerFilters value under the same key in the registry:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
    5. On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.
    6. Quit Registry Editor.
    NOTE: After you remove the Upperfilters value and the Lowerfilters value, if you notice lost functionality in a particular program, such as CD recording software, you may need to reinstall that software. If the problem recurs, consult with the software vendor for assistance.

    7. Restart your computer.

    I think it's important to know how the drives were deleted.

    I found it somewhere. Don't ask me where. I'm getting into the habit of adding web links but a lot I have still miss them. What tips & tweaks I see I copy & put them in my xp document folder for reference.

    To use system restore make sure it is turned on for the drives you want to cover. Right click my computer/properties/system restore.
    I put a shortcut on the desktop.
    Righ click desktop/new/shortcut. Copy & paste this>
    %SystemRoot%\System32\restore\rstrui.exe
    Then I make my own restore point every now & then, especially before installing unknown software.
