"CD Recording Software" error driving me crazy...

I am having a similar problem. I uninstalled Easy CD creator 4 from my computer that has windows XP, and now my CD / DVD drive won't even play a cd or dvd. I followed the advice, deleted the cdr4_2k.sys and Cdralw2k.sys as well as went into the registry and removed: upper filters, lower filters, cdr4_2k, and Cdralw2k.

I was unable to locate the Cdudf or UdfReadr from the registry, and therefore, was unable to delete these. I ran a search and did not find either. I do have Cdfs and Udfs in the Currentcontrolset/services/ folder area, but it appears as these files are normal.

I have spent hours trying to repair this problem, and will admit that I am stumped. Can somebody please help me with this?
Thanks!

p.s.
I also installed roxiozap, and that failed to work as well.

It's a pain to completely remove older versions of Roxio/Adaptec CD Creator. I have the instruction for 5 somewhere, I'll try to see if I can dig them up


Try this:


Note: if you are running Windows NT or 2000, login as ADMINISTRATOR, not just
a user with administrative rights.
1. Click Start button and select "Setting" then "Control Panel" menu options.
2. Select the "Add/Remove" programs icon.
3. Select and remove all Easy CD Creator programs and remove all shared files when
prompted.
Next Clean Easy CD Creator completely from your system:
1. Go to "Start" then "Search", look in C:\\ (or the drive where your operating system
is located) and search for:
Cdr4vsd.sys
Cdr4dll.dll
Cdral.dll
Cdrtc.dll
2. Rename all files changing their extensions to .ROX
(Right click on the file name and choose "rename")
3. Go to "Start" and then to "My Computer" and select it.
4. Go into your C:\\ drive (C:\\ is default install drive, compensate accordingly if you
installed in another location)
5. Go into the "Program Files" Folder
6. Look for a "Adaptec" folder and if found delete it
7. Look for a "Direct CD" folder and if found delete it
8. Go into the "Common Files" Folder
9. Look for an "Adaptec" and/or "Adaptec Shared" folder and if found delete them.

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
