Matshita dvd-ram-UJ-8505 ATA

I can occasionally play one CD on my F Drive and then inexplicably it will not read CDs, only DVDs and I never know when it is going to read CDs again. When I check the status in properties it says the CD is working but it is not. Is there some change I can make in the configuration to ensure that it will read CDs as well as DVDs?

    Give this a try: Works for Vista, XP, maybe even Win 7.

    - "Run" Regedit
    - search for "PxHelp20.sys"
    - Rename the folder "PxHelp20" to "_PxHelp20". (This is in th left pane that shows the folder tree like thing)

    Done !

    I could start setup programs, listen to audio on CDs, immediately after closing the Regedit program.

    PS: If it works for you also, "Best Answer" would be Nice ! :bounce:
