    my dvd-rom and cd-rw won't register when discs are inserted.I tried fixing
    this by going to device manager in XP(my OS), and cd-rom drives is not an
    option and doesn't show up there or in My Computer. I was wondering how to
    fix this.

    I did the guided help for the filters and got a response:
    'The UpperFilters and Lowerfilters registry values that can cause CD access
    problems do not exist on your computer.'
    ...this may be because I did this earlier looking at the forum, and then
    restarted the computer, but they still weren't reading. I tried it again and
    thats the message I got. Should I undo this?and try something else? I
    appreciate the help,
