I had to replace my motherboard due to a failure. Getting Win XP Pro
back to install has been a real pain. I have it now where I can boot
into windows. The 2 things that are not being recognized are my CD Rom
and DVD Rom. They have a yellow ? next to them in device manager. I've
deleted them several times and still they won't be recogonized. One
is a Samsung DVD-ROM SD-636 the other just says DVDRW IDE1108. Anyone
have any Ideas how I can get them recognized? I can't get SP2 on there
until I can get these drives working

Any help would be appreciated

I meant to also say that they are recognized by the bios. The error in
device manageer is "Windows cannot load the device driver for this
hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)"

Goto http://aumha.org/win5/a/xpcd.php#problems
See the second "problem" (read the caveats)
Run the provided registry patch

That should fix your problem (basically, a filter driver is missing or
non-operational, the registry patch will delete the filter drivers
references for your cdrom(s))


Basically, the reg file from above carries out the steps displayed at this
website

Thanks Gary. I had already found that first article, and edited the
registry as indicated. Worked like a champ!

Thanks again.
