Default Need help with detecting CD Drives

Ok I have Windows Xp and when I installed my DVD Writer it showed both the Writer and cdr in windows explorer, when I went and installed sonic software for recording dvd's I noticed the cd' drives were missing from windows explorer, there are exclamation points next to the drives! When i click on properties it says hardware detected but there is an error in the registry? any ideas?

Umm pc-doctor? I'm sorry if my response is inadequate, because I don't have much knowledge in this field. Also is there an option for "repair" or something like that?

Do you have a more specific error message?

Try right clicking on the drives in device manager, uninstall, then scan for new hardware.
