    My first post,this is my problem i used a regcleaner program that i have'nt used before and ran the app with an auto fix which fixes registry errors with the click of one button,ah that was my second mistake,first was downloading it,a couple hours later i was going to load up a game with my cd rom drive and nothing happened when i poped in the cd.Went in to my computer and noticed both my cd rom drives are gone[lg burner and pioneer dvdrom].Went into device manager and unistalled them both rebooted and still no no cdrom drives.Went into bios and they are there so my guess is that regcleaner must have changed the cdrom configuration somehow.Man i have alot of mp3's and apps ill loose if i have to format,so i would really appreciate any help you guys can give me.Specs amd 2500barton,asus a7n8x deluxe,os winxp sp1.Thanks guys for any help.

    does this particular cleaner make a backup of the registry keys it changes?

    if so, merge them back in

    If that doesn't help then un-install the IDE controller that they're on and reboot.

    3)turn computer on
    4)turn computer off
    5)plug cd-roms back in
    6)all should be fixed

    Sorry m8 but just uninstallin' the IDE channel that they're on (thru the Device Manager and they should be on the secondary IDE channel and not the primary) and rebootin' is much easier than doin' that ya just described and it will achieve the exact same result only much faster.
