My CDROM is not detecting any disc from last 5 month, i brought it 10 months back used 2 to 3 times only, then suddenly it stop detecting any cd/dvd inserted into the drive. I though there may be fault in CD-ROM. So i brought USB CD-ROM but same problem occurs

Here are the details and checks i have made: 1. windows 7 desktop 2. LG CD-ROM internal as well as external 3. CD-ROM drive icon is visible in my computer 4. Checked in device manager, drives are up to date, disabled it and enable again 5. check registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

@="DVD/CD-ROM drives"

There is no entry of upperfilter or lowerfilter to delete.

Please Suggest what to do???

Meanwhile i will test my CD-ROM on another Machine. Thanks in advance.

If multiple devices don't work then it has to be a driver problem. What version of Windows are you using –  Ramhound Mar 8 at 18:42
