Lost DVD/CD-ROM drive letters in "My Computer"


T

Hi, I have Windows 2000.
Is there a way to get my DVD/CD-ROM drive letters back in
the "My Computer" Folder? I still have (A) floppy disk,
(C) Hard Drive, and (D) Zip Drive. I lost (E) DVD/CD-ROM
Drive and (F) CD-RW CD-Writer Drive.
I did a back up to the last known good registry. I DO NOT
have a registry back up.

How can I get them back. They are both properly listed in
my Device Manager. When I click on them I get, "This
device is not working properly because Windows cannot load
the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)".

Thanks, Tom G

Thanks for the help. Removing the filters did the trick.

Now for my second problem created by "yours truely"
In trying to correct my drive letter problem I ended up
installing an additional Windows 2000. I now have two
Windows 2000 operating systems on my computer. One is
called WINNT and the other (new one), WINDOWS. How should
I go about removing the new, not needed, empty Windows
2000? I did not partition my Hard Drive during the
installation.

Again thanks for your help
