I used Winferno a couple of days ago to clean my registry.....probably BIG mistake.
First both of my DVD drives disappeared, but I found a solution to edit the registry so they are now back. However, now the DVD/CD burner won't work. I suspect that it has nothing to do with the drive itself, but will give info on the drive (Plextor PX 800A -- the Plextor Plex Tools can do read/write tests on it fine, so it appears to be a Windows problem).
When I try to do a backup to the drive from my Quicken program or if I even simply try to copy a file from drive C: (my main hard disk drive) to it, I perpetually get the message that there is no disc in the drive!
I have searched and since found that the type of drive was incorrectly set in the registry; I changed the value to 2 rather than 3 after searching the Microsoft database
so that the computer now recognizes it as a recording drive (based upon going to "My Computer" and looking at the drive properties, but it still will not record! When I try to send it a file from my drive C: I get the "CD Writing Wizard" which tells me promptly that there is 'no disc in the drive'
