Hi Scott,

I posted in the hardware section but I have a feeling it is XP.

XP does not show my CD ROM or CD/DVD burner. The BIOS sees them and I can boot to one of them so I am assuming they are operational. The device manager reports that a driver was loaded for both of them but cannot detect them. I uninstalled the secondary IDE channel and at boot it said it found them but I still cannot access them. I use my own modified version of explorer.exe and I took that out of the registry and am loading the default explorer.exe thinking I may have boinked something but that was not the cause. I am beginning to think it is OS because I am unable to boot into safe mode.

Thanks for your time.

Kyle

Do the drives work in another system? If so, then they are good, otherwise replace them.

If they are good, then XP is the problem. From your description of being unable to boot into safe mode, and using some alternative Explorer(?), I'd say it's time for a reinstall from scratch. Let me know how it turns out, Scott.

The above MS article solved the problem. I don't remember removing any CD programs especially In CD but never the less deleting the upper filter from this registry key solved the problem. My CD drives are back and I am a happy man.

Thanks for your help Scott.
