Vista PC dropped CD/DVD drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Pentium IV PC running Vista Home Basic.  It came with a combination CDRW/DVDR drive that has worked fine for three years.  Lately I installed a USB 2.0 PCI card as it had older version USBs.  After I did this My CD/DVD no longer worked.  I couldn't find it in Explorer.  I found it in Device manager with a warning on the driver, "Windows can't run this because it is not configured properly in the Registry code 19."  It won't let me download a new driver because I already have the most current and it can't fix it.  I tried a Technet fix concerning this, but I couldn't find the Registry subkey it said to delete.  I have uninstalled and disabled numerous time all with no success.  I know it must be a registry problem, but what do I do?  I even loaded a new CD/DVDRW thinking this would force Vista to get a new driver or maybe the setup of a new drive would fix the problem... Now I have two inoperable CD/DVD drives both with the same warning.   HELP!
