Am I the only one this fix still isn't working for?
I've got the same matshita-dvd-ram-uj-850s drive as JTrain/everybody else, running VISTA, but with an Acer Aspire 5100. Seems like a few others with acers were able to get it to work.
My problems started out as the drive not showing up under "Computer", then randomly it would show up if I restarted with a CD in the drive, and sometimes at random I can view a data file, but not open anything. It's been a while since I could open or view anything on the drive. Since this problem started I haven't been able to run any executable files off of CD's at all.
I tried JTrain's fix--uninstalled the drive, then ran the cdgone registry fix, restarted and the drive reinstalled, but it still doesn't open. Tried just disable, then cdgone, then enable, still doesn't work.
I tried the manual fix of deleting upper and lower filters in the registry, but they weren't there!
I was exasperated before, now that my problems didn't end in 2 minutes like everybody else, I don't know what else to do!
Thanks in advance.
