Hello YouTube today im going to show you on how to fix your CD/DVD drive in Windows 7.

I experieced this problem right after I took my custom computer apart and out it back together. I checked it everything was properly connected and it was. But the drive icon never showed up on the computer.

1. Click start and in the searchbar, search for “regedit”
3. Go to “SYSTEM”
4. Go to “CurrentControlSet”
5. Go to “Control”
6. Go to “Class”
7. Go to “{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}”
8. And you want to make sure that you delete only your “LowerFilters” and “UpperFilters”
9. Restart your computer and it should detec the CD/DVD drive
