    DVD/CD drive has stopped to work on Windows Vista

    Certainly, a yellow exclamation sign showing under device manager and icon for dvd or cd rom not showing on my computer screen. I tried to update driver but getting message that best updated driver is already installed. Need help on this issue!!

    Re: DVD/CD drive has stopped to work on Windows Vista

    Fix for missing DVD/CD drives.

    Create a text file with NOTEPAD containing the following data exactly as below and name it FIXCD.REG
    You should have 3 boxes on the bottom in NOTEPAD.
    1)Filename : fixcd.reg
    2)Save as type: all files
    3)Encoding: ANSI
    If you do not change it from txt type to All files type, then the file will actually be fixcd.reg.txt, this won't accomplish the desired result

    Double click on the file and say yes to the merge into registry question.

    ----------------------- Use text after this line, contents of FIXCD.REG -----------------------------
    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}]
    "UpperFilters"=-
    "LowerFilters"=-

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Cdr4_2K]

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Cdralw2k]

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Cdudf]

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\UdfReadr]

    from the device manager... right click on the dvd/cd rom drive and select uninstall (this will uninstall that driver from you system) and then from the top right corner of the device manager select scan for hardware changes now the system will start installing that dvd driver again...
    now check for the changes...

    Hi,

    You need to remove the Driver software first from the Device Manager list.

    Click on CD/DVD ROM Drive and click uninstall,

    from Device Manager Click on same CD/DVD ROM Drive and select Update driver to get a new driver for the drive.

    Once the installed drive shows in the list right click on it for hardware upgradation reminder.

    Thanks.
