Exit Registry Editor.

Microsoft claims this should fix it ^


Go to the Device Manager - CD/DVD - double click the device - Driver's Tab - click
Update Drivers (this will likely do nothing) - then RIGHT CLICK the drive - UNINSTALL - REBOOT
this will refresh the default driver stack


Can also try this ^

After uninstalling / reinstalling cdrom.sys, swapping cd-drives, etc. etc. I got a lead that made me suspect iTunes had played a part in this fiasco. Updated the cdrom driver GEARAspiWDM.sys from http://www.gearsoftware.com/support/drivers.php and *voila* all is fixed.

This worked, after Samsung wanted me to "refresh" Win8. Fortunately, I didn't, after reading that MS "refresh" wipes out all your non-MS software installs. Of course, Samsung support didn't bother to mention this minor issue when they suggested it. Anyway, fixed the "corrupted cdrom.sys" problem.

Thanks Macgregor808.
