Re: CD-ROM missing in Dell Dimension 4500 with Windows XP

Even I even have similar drawback i used to be recently warned by my AVG virus scan that there was a hider Trojan in my cdrom.sys files. AVG white flagged it as a result of it could not take away the file. after I ran Malwarebytes it deletes the Trojan, AND it's am passionate about it took the cdron.sys with it. currently my cd rom isn't detected in software. Device manager says that the driving force is all up thus far though there are yellow question marks next to it. Any ideas???? am i able to copy the cdrom.sys files from another machine and replace them?

Have you tried the "show hidden devices" possibility within the read menu within the device manager?

nLite is notorious for screwing things up - i would not be shocked if that is the reason behind your drawback

Re: CD-ROM missing in Dell Dimension 4500 with Windows XP

i'm unsure may well be this help but worth a try

Code:
Registry Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class
Key Name: {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Value Data: [Delete All Value Data from UpperFilters and LowerFilters]
In it delete the Key or the Multi-String Values
Delete only the data values.
Exit Registry and Reboot
