Windows XP Home...Disc drives have dissappeared..Help!

Both my re-writer and disc drive have gone from my computer leaving just my floppy drive. Both plug and play.... I have tried to find and re-install but no good.
Any help would be appreciated.

Yes. There are many articles about the upper and lowerfilters causing the CD/DVD drives to vanish. I had that one in the clipboard so I used it.

You can research it deeply with google.com

I had the same happen to me, although I am running Win2k. What I did was disable a couple items in my startup using msconfig, that caused my problem.

Do: start, run, msconfig and select normal startup

Interesting, Msconfig Isn't On Windows 2000....

....unless you installed the program yourself..Msconfig is on XP but not 2000.

Just curious.
