EMC 7.5 makes DVD drives inaccessable


carlv

Question

I have a problem :huh:

 

I have upgraded to an AMD Athlon 64 in a Gigabyte motherboard and when I install EMC 7.5 the DVD drives become inaccessable. When EMC is uninstalled they become accessable again.

 

Is anyone else having the same proplem ?

 

If so what is the cure for this bug?

 

I have version 8 but i dont like it as it does not transcode dual layer DVDs to single layer which 7.5 does very nicely :)

 

Can anyone help ?

From a very old post:

 

It is a Windows thing, losing drives when installing/un-installing burning software…

 

If the drives are still listed in the Device Manager, delete them then carefully follow this fix:

 

"Upper/Lower Filters:

 

a. Click on Start --> Run --> and type in 'regedit' followed by the enter key

b. Expand the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" key (looks like a folder) by double clicking it (or clicking the "+" next to it.)

c. Expand the "SYSTEM" Key

d. Expand the "CurrentControlSet" Key

e. Expand the "Control" Key

f. Expand the "Class" Key

g. Look for a key containing the following string of letter and numbers:

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

h. Highlight this key by left clicking once on it

i. On the right hand side you are looking for "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" under the "Name" column, once you find these delete them by right clicking on them and choosing "delete"

j. Exit the registry by clicking on the "X" in the top right hand corner of the screen

 

Reboot your computer"
