I had to re-install windows due to a virus and two wees later my computer dropped by DVD-ROM and my CD-RW drives and refuses to recognize them. One says that it sees the drive, but the registry is broken and the other says it installed the driver but cannot find the hardware. Any thoughts?

Goto http://aumha.org/win5/a/xpcd.php#problems
See the second "problem" (read the caveats)
Run the provided registry patch

That should fix your problem (basically, a filter driver is missing or
non-operational, the registry patch will delete the filter drivers
references for your cdrom(s))


Basically, the reg file from above carries out the steps displayed at this
website
