Default CDROMs Disappear after uninstall

sponsored links

I am completely baffled as to why this is happening and need help.

My friend had Nero, Veratis (?) and Burn and Go X installed.. I went thru add/remove programs and they uninstalled, but now the cdroms are missing from explorer. I see them in device manager with yellow exclamation points. I tried uninstalling the devices and letting windows see them on reboot, which it did. I tried to do an update driver and it fails out.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Try this.

7. Click the REG_MULTI_SZ data type LowerFilters, and then click Delete on the Edit menu. When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click Yes.
8. Quit the Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.
