    • Click Start
    • Type regedit
    • Navigate to this key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4d36e965-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}
    • Make sure it's the correct one there are several that look the same (under the class value it will say CDROM
    • Delete the Upper Filters and Lower Filters values
    • Reboot
