internal (& external) burner(s) have disappeared. w8.1pre RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello: w8.1pre on Toshiba l505 laptop. The DVD burner has disappeared.  Toshiba's own "RmvFltrs.exe" for w7 did not succeed.  W8 was upgrade onto w7, but has worked fine until now (Tosh does not support this model on w8).  I installed sw using the internal drive.  Uninstalling & disabling the drive (appears in dev. mgr.) did not fix.  An external USB DVD burner is also seen but has same problem (presumed drivers).  Where can I find the proper drivers and/or get the fix (other than reinstall w8)?  Thank you.

  • Solved-too much autoruns editing. Opened autoruns, checked "Elby CDFL - CDIO filter driver" which I had unchecked as unnecessary on boot. It's necessary. DVD (D: ) appears, works.
