hoping someone can help me out. I've not been having any problems with my HP
Compaq NC6220 notebook's Matshita UJDA765aDVD/CDRW drive until today, after I
installed the August updates via Windows AutoUpdate. I was able to play CD-R
discs yesterday, but today, all CD-R discs as well as original music CD discs
are not recognised by the Matshita drive. No contents are displayed, no
autorun, and attempts to write onto a blank CD-R shows the drive saying that
it is empty (despite having a new blank CD-R).
I can put in original game DVD discs or movie DVDs and their contents will
be displayed via autorun, but NOT DVD+R discs.
I deleted lowerfilters (didn't have any UpperFilters) in the registry and
uninstalled the drive, rebooted to see if it can reinstall the drivers. All
to no avail.
Has anyone encountered this problem? Any ideas on how to resolve this? The
only thing installed since yesterday was the August batch of security
updates, so it could only be that that's causing the problems, somehow
messing up the registry?
Device Manager shows no problems whatsoever (no yellow triangle with
exclamation mark). The DVD drive is visible in device manager, again without
conflicts or problems.
Please, if anyone can help out, I'd really appreciate it. Am at wits end on
what else can be done? I did a system restore to before the updates were
installed, but no luck there either. I'm running Windows XP SP2.
Any help greatly appreciated!
