Please help I am almost to the point of crying out of frustration. After uninstalling the trial version of Alcohol 120%, neither one of my physical optical drives on my computer will recognize any form of cd ( cdrom, cd-r, commercial cd, ect.) I place into either of them. My dvd/cd recorder ( liteon sohw-1673s) will recognize all my dvd's initially as a cd( ???) . I honestly don't know what to do. please help me. This is my system report: ########################### System Information

System report removed by zamiel

Thank you in advance for any help.

You're running Window XP, please use the latest trial version 1.9.5.4629 from the Alcohol-Soft site. Version 1.9.5.3105 is now only used for Windows 98 and ME.

Download and run the attached autofix program from Microsoft. It checks for incorrect settings in the autorun/autoplay, which is what it sounds like is happening. See if it fixes your problem.

Have you tried removing your Optical Devices from the Device Manager, rebooting and letting Windows put them back in?

Do you have any restore point prior to the occurence of the problem so that you can revert to it with the Windows System Restore function? If this doesn't work then check if the old version's drivers and registry keys have been removed from your system- look in your Windows\System32\Drivers folder for the vax347s.sys and vax347b.sys files and search the registry with "vax347" as the keyword. Notice that if you have changed the default drivers' names you must look for the ones that you gave to them. One more thing that you can do is to check what is reported in the Device Manager about your drives.

I've done everything you recommended and there are no files, like that found in any of my folders including all hidden files.

What about the registry entries? Do you currently have any version of Alcohol or SPTD installed? If nothing helps then the only thing that you can do is to uninstall Alcohol and SPTD if you have them installed and perform a Windows repair install using your Windows XP CD, this will repair Windows without deleting your files.

Do you have Daemon Tools installed per chance?
