Default Re: Lost DVD/Cd drive....thought I posted earlier???

The registry fix I posted a link to didn't work? It resolves the majority of these problems. Are you sure you deleted the correct registry keys? Optical drives do not need drivers, so there's nothing you can download, and if the computer doesn't recognize the drives, you're likely going to have a problem flashing the firmware.

They use generic drivers built-into Windows. Take a look at your Device Manager, and check the Drivers tab .
