    Hey guys whats up...i haven't been around since i was on that road trip this weekend. Well, i decided to upgrade my cd-burner program Ez CD creator 5.0 to plantinum. After i did that i restarted and it gave me problems at boot up. After i finally got to safe mode and so on and then normal configs...my cd-rom (all three) don't don't work under windows. Window recognizes them...and at device manager i see all three...but none can be used. When i look under "My computer" all i see is my floppy and my partitions. Notrhing else...

    I tried installing the companys(i.e. plextor's, sony's and lite on's) firmaware but when i try that out and error pops up saying that the cd rom is not recognized...yet in device manager it is.

    It does mention that some driver files are corrupt...any clue guys...thx alot.: peace2:

    soudns like a very similiar problem to what happened to my friends computer a few months ago (cause of me). I installed virtual cd and it took out his cd-roms. :eek:

    After hours and hours of him troubleshooting and trying to fix things we bowed down to a format.

    Does your cd-roms come back after uninstallation?

    might be worth removing the cdroms from device manager and seeing if htey auto detect, as well as perhaps the IDE controller....

    It sounds like the install was borked, and the ASAPI or similar drivers were stuffed... im not sure how to fix this but one might try installing a new versin of nero?

    Maybe it blew out the ide controller drivers. Have you tried re-installing them?

    Try pulling out all the CD drives then go into windows, turn off the computer and put them back in and go again.
    Or you could try reseting your configaration data in your BIOS.

    Have you tried actually downloading any updates for EZCD? Many problems have been resolved in the past with burner programs and a simple update.

    Also, I'd have recommended Ahead's Nero burning software. It beats the snot out of EZCD, and is less harmful to your system ;)
