When i put a cd in my D:\ drive absolutly nothing happens. When I go into My
Computer and click on the D:\ drive icon it says"the drive or network
connection is unavailable". I don't know whether the D:\ drive has been
reassigned to a different letter or if I need to do something so that the
hard drive recognizes it but I know it works properly because the disk drive
file under the C:\ drive hardware says it is ok. Any help? Thanks

To resolve this issue, follow these steps:

1. Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
[Start > Run and type: REGEDIT , and hit enter]

2. Locate the UpperFilters value under the following key in the registry:

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

3. On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.

4. Locate the LowerFilters value under the same key in the registry:

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

5. On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.

6. Quit Registry Editor.NOTE: After you remove the Upperfilters value and the Lowerfilters value,
if you notice lost functionality in a particular program, such as CD recording software, you may need
to reinstall that software. If the problem recurs, consult with the software vendor for assistance.

7. Restart your computer.

A few other things i should say is that I was never aware that Easy Cd
Creator was ever on my computer and if it was I don't know how it got
deleted. I am also not getting any error messages at all. Just that the
target, in the cd drive icon's properties, says that the target (D:\) is not
valid.
