Don't delete all of them.

To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the Default data value is DVD/CD-ROM and the Class data value is CDROM.

Question Re: Sony DVD RW AW-G170A driver problem

ok i think i found the right ones, but they specify it a little differently and idk if that makes it different from what you're talking about but it was the only one closest to what you were talking about this is what i mean

No, the one you have is different. Disk drives is probably referring to your hard drive so don't touch that one.
It must read Default data value is DVD/CD-ROM and the Class data value is CDROM
