My CD / DVD drive (D) no longer shows up in Folders,it takes and spins
the CD,but does not play it. It's a Toshiba ,Windows 7 (64)
Please help, I'm not a computer GURU
I have a Win7-64 bit pc and every time I install or update a driver stealer (i.e. I-tunes, Nero, Roxio...the same thing happens.
If above solutions don't help try this, but do so,carefully as it's non-reversible.
1 Click Start, and then click Run.
2 In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
3 In the navigation pane, locate and then click the following registry subkey:
4 In the right pane, click UpperFilters.
Note: You may also see an UpperFilters.bak registry entry. You do not have to remove that entry. Click UpperFilters only. If you do not see the UpperFilters registry entry, you still might have to remove the LowerFilters registry entry. To do this, go to step 7.
5 On the Edit menu, click Delete.
6 When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click Yes.
7 In the right pane, click LowerFilters.
Note: If you do not see the LowerFilters registry entry, unfortunately this content cannot help you any further. Go to the "Next Steps" section for information about how you can find more solutions or more help on the Microsoft Web site.
8 On the Edit menu, click Delete.
9 When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click Yes.
10 Exit Registry Editor.

This always gives me my lost drives back.
