My cd rom drive just dissappeared!
Posted on 2004-04-25
I have WinXp Pro, I was fooling around with the registry (I shouldn't have done that). So I changed something to speed up the shut down and did something to my Internet connection to speed up, and change some of the automatic to manual startup services (I don't know if the details are important)
I restarted my computer, and while booting up, it gave 'drive something was updated' or something like that. Then I went to my computer, and boom! my Drive D (my nornal cd drive) was gone. Although my drive E (which is my cd burner) is still there.
So, I changed what I changed in the registry back to its normal setting (good thing I wrote down what I changed). Restarted the computer, but Drive D: was still missing. I did system restore, that didn't help.
Any thought? Thanks.
