Winamp disable DVDROM Driver in Vista Ultimate 64

Hi there.
Two weeks ago i installed the latest Wiamp.

after restart the computer.
My DVD ROM and DVD Burner don't show up in the system tray.

i went to device manager and it was an error saying that driver is wrong or something.

This is the Error in Device Manangement.

Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

Hmm... strange.

What is this system tray app you've got running (ie. the one that shows your DVD drives)?

The Sonic Burning Engine has been updated 3 or 4 times between v5.0 and 5.5x, and yes, it's possible that there's some conflict with them, either with Vista 64 or with whatever this system tray app is...

You could try unchecking Sonic Burning/Ripping Support in the installer options:

You could also zip up and attach dxdiag, HijackThis & List Of Plugins logs, which might reveal something, but I can't guarantee anything...

I also managed to find this... (not sure how relevant it is though, heh)

Happened Here Too

My DVDROM player disappeared too and I get that identical error message.

My OS is Vista Ultimate 32 though.

I'll be watching to see if this gets addressed

Thanks - do I get to re-install it?

If you know how, I'd appreciate the help.
But I want to have Winamp (I'm using 5.51) - so will I get to use it after the fix?

Are we the only ones with the problem?
Regards,

Broogle

dont know if it is just us with the problem.
but here are the way to get back the cd rom/ dvd rom drive

click start
go to run
type in "regedit"
click ok

in Registery Editor, Expand My computer and then expand to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
expand SYSTEM and then expand CurrentcontrolSet.
Expand Control and then expand class
under Class, click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
In the right pane, click UpperFilters.
click Edit,, click Delete.

Do the same for LowerFilters.

delete those two..

close it
restart
it should work now with the media on.

i hope there is a fix for this.

maybe i will try to go back to winamp 5.0

As I said, uninstall then reinstall Winamp, but without the Sonic Burning Engine (ie. uncheck it in the installer options). There would seem to be a problem with the Sonic drivers and your DVD drive, which could be fixed by installing the Sonic Solutions patch I linked to in my first reply (but I aren't entirely sure about that) - but if you don't install the Sonic Engine in the first place then you won't have the problem so won't need the patch anyway.

Also note that the Sonic Engine only adds a LowerFilter driver entry in the registry (PxHelp20) and not an UpperFilter.
