This is a common problem that has existed in several versions of windows. You essentially have a registry error that is causing your Optical Drive not to work. Follow the steps below to fix your issue.

1) Close all open programs
2) Click on Start, Run, and type REGEDIT and press Enter
3) Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
- SYSTEM
- CurrentControlSet
- Control
- Class
- {4D36E965-E325-11CE-
BFC1-08002BE10318}

4) This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right window pane.

- UpperFilters
- LowerFilters
- UpperFilters.bak
- LowerFilters.bak

5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor
7) Reboot your computer
8) Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone

Just posting to say that Caruda is a genius, or one helpful person at the least! And that this works still in Windows 8. I had a code 19 error on both my DVD / Blu Ray drives and this fixed them.

my dvd burner, blu-ray burner and my poweriso virtual drive would not show up in my computer and would not work at all. tried many "solutions" found on forums and was about to give up, wipe my system and put a fresh version of windows 7 on when i saw this and...... hey presto!! working beautifully. thank you so much! saved me many hours in front of the computer. LEGEND!

Hi Caruda!

Thanks to your post I just solved a problem I was having from long time on my Windows 7- based PC!

No one of many other proposed solutions I tried (also from Microsoft!!) worked!

Thanks again
