AGAIN!! Windows ME Disappearing CD Rom Drive

  argon 14:15 05 Feb 2005

After thinking it had been resolved it's gone again.
If I use boot up disk and enter start computer with CD rom support it starts installing Me from the CD proving (I Think) connections are good!
However when fully booted no sign of CD Rom in My Computer or System devices has anyone any ideas why this shoul happen.
In AMIBIOS SETUp-Standard CMOS Setup master and slaves are set to Auto

Run regedit and navigate to registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.

Highlight it and in the right pane, find the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters values.

Highlight each one in turn, right click and delete them.

Close regedit and restart the computer. If in doubt make a restore point before making changes.
