phantom device


R

Robert Gardner

Out of the blue I am unable to use my cd/dvd rom drives. I
have a CD/RW and a CD/DVD rom drive, Both AOpen brand,
which were working fine until this morning. Now in device
manager I see a phantom device -
"AXV CD/DVD-ROM SCSI CdRom Device"
listed under cd roms and it is reported to be working
fine. I have no such device or any SCSI interfaces at all
for that matter. The CDRW and CD/DVD both show but with
exclamations and show error 10. With both drives unplugged
the phantom is still there. System untouched for at least
a year and is Athlon 1800, WIN2K Pro. Anyone seen anything
like this.
PS. McAffe and Zonealarm are installed so it probably
isn't a virus.

What did you do, when you ahve trouble?
did you install anything? or did you download anything?
I think "AVX CD/DVD-ROM SCSI CdRom Device" are Alcohol Virtual Drive.
If you installed that check your Alcohol settings.
or post more deteils info.
