Hi,

It's upperfilters and lowerfilters (no space) and they do exist in Vista
under this key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Is the drive seen in the system BIOS?

If the advice at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929461/en-us doesn't solve
your problem then you could try reinstalling or updating your IDE drivers.
Uninstall original drivers, restart PC. Either let Windows find the correct
drivers or get them from your PC or DVD Drive manufacturers website.

Good luck

Hi,

Apologies, but If you can't get into the BIOS how do you
know the DVD is recognized? Are you seeing it during POST? Anyhow if you
need to gain access to your BIOS setup and you don't know the password then
look here for advice:
