Hey everyone, I just wanted to thank you all for your help with putting together my first build. Everything installed with no problems, and it was working perfectly for about 4 days. Suddenly when I restarted one time I noticed my DVD drive was not appearing in explorer. Device manager showed a conflict, specifically it indicates that the driver is
there but it cannot install it (error 39). I'm using Vista Ultimate 64.
This is despite the fact that the DVD drive appears during the BIOS post, and I can boot off DVDs such as Ubuntu live. I have tried uninstalling the device in Vista and then restarting, but the same thing happens when I reboot. Any ideas what could have caused this?
I tried moving the drive to a different SATA port on the motherboard, and when I rebooted Vista detected new hardware but couldn't correctly install the driver... which led to the same conflict in device manager. As for the filters problem, I searched for those strings in the registry and couldn't find any trace of them.
