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
Geforce3
2x HDDs
Win XP Home Edition


thanks

Go into device manager and remove both of them .

Reboot

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


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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
