CD-RW Drive

i'm having problems with my CD-RW drive. Samsung SW-240B> When i try to burn a CD, it freezes, and I cannot for the love of god terminate the app. eventually, i killed the process that was running the app in task manager, and then my CD-RW & DVD-ROM drive vanished. I have an AMN Athlon XP 2400+, 512mb RAM, Windows XP Home.

plz help!! :@

terminate the app

what app?

No CD/DVD or CD-ROM access is missing error
Code 31, Code 32, Code 19, Code 39, or Code 41
Try this if the optical drives are not appearing in My Computer or Device Manager.
This is sometimes caused by the removal of Roxio software.
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. click here

the app was Roxio Easy CD Creator 5.5

the above fix works especally for missing CDs afer Roxio has been uninstalled.

in the end, i have decided it was about time for an upgrade anyway, so i've managed to get an NEC DVD-RW dual quad speed. it works alot better than the old CD-RW. thanks 4 your suggestion anyway.
