Hi:

One day to the next my CD-ROM drive icon is missing. Went to Regedit and
deleted values for LowerFilter; there is no UpperFilter Key, Multi-String
values or data values. Rebooted and same issue. Any ideas?

Thanks.

As my Mother would ask, "Where did you last use it?" ;-)

Restore Missing CD Drive
http://aumha.org/downloads/cdgone.zip

[[The popular CDGONE patch. CD drives may vanish in Windows Explorer, Device
Manager, etc. if a third-party CD-burning package has been uninstalled and
Registry references for some code modules aren’t removed successfully. This
patch and a reboot usually will restore the missing drives. Any third
party package still required will then have to be re-installed. ]]

section of Alex Nichol’s Burning CDs in Windows XP article.]]
