i checked the site .. edited my registry .. now my cd drives show normally .. but in "device manager" they r put into an "unknown" category .. but the name of the drivers are correct .. but they r not working corectly like they should.. they just read files .. easy cd creator cant detect it as a dvd-r .. etc
i tried unistall install .. restart .. etc nothing
