I cannot access optical drives since RC1 install RRS feed

  • Question

  • Last week I installed Vista RC1 and since that time, I have not been able to access either my DVD-ROM, CD-RW or DVD-RW drives on my system.  When I checked the properties of the drives in Device manager I get the following message for all three drives: "A driver (service) for this device has been disabled.  An alternate driver may be providing this functionality. (Code 32)

    Click 'Check for solutions' to send data about this device to Microsoft and to see if there is a solution available."  Yet when I click on the Check for solutions button, it runs for an infinite amount of time with no solution found. 

    Does anyone have any ideas?
