CD/DVD player wont start / cant find any DVD/CDs on VISTA RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI!

    Just one day when I put a game into the CPU nothing happened. When I go to my computer : it wont find the dvd player.
    I have windows vista 32 home premium sp1.

    I have tried this, but it did not work ( might be becouse I did not understand how I could enter the value to 1, when there are loads of 00000):
     


    Reason for issue is an update in Vista blocked the

    policies.

    1. Go to Start/Run or at the command line type

    'Start Run' without the hypens.
    2. Type gpedit.msc
    3. Go to User configuration/Administrative

    templates/Windows components/Windows explorer
    On the right pane, double click on "Remove CD

    burning features" tick the enabled button, then OK.
    Reboot or logoff/logon to apply.

    If your vista version does not have the gpedit

    function, do the following:

    1. Go to Start/Run and in the command line type

    'regedit' without the hypens.
    2. Press the Ctrl & F keys on the keyboard or select

    the Find/Search option and copy/paste the following

    line in the find field:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current

    Version\Policies\Explorer

    3. In the right pane, if it does not already exist,

    create a new 32-bit DWORD value.
    (Note: How to write a 32 bit DWORD; If you press

    edit -> new-> DWORD (32 bit value), once you are in

    the registry editor, it will allow you to create a

    new DWORD. Another simple method is to right click

    using the mouse over on the right pane, a popup menu

    should display, select New/Dword. Once created,

    right click the new Dword to rename it and then you

    can right click the new DWORD select Modify, giving

    it a value of one. Name the new value as

    NoCDBurning, and assign the value data to 1.
    3. Reboot or logoff/logon to apply.
