CD/DVD Icon Not Showing in My Computer Window

Tutorial [教程] • 29 JULY 2015
Lately my PC desktop does not read any cds or dvds when loaded into it. I've tried inserting a couple of times into my desktop yet it cannot be detected. Could it be a dirty DVD or dirty lens. I clean off the DVD with a damp soft cloth yet it doesn't work.  I was really frustrated. Luckily I found the tutorial below and Method 2 solved my problem. 


METHOD 1:

1. Type regedit in RUN dialog box and press Enter. It'll open Registry Editor.

2. Now go to following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
3. Look for "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" strings in right-side pane. If you find them, delete them.


4. Restart the system and now you should  have access to your optical drives.

METHOD 2:

If the above method doesn't work for you or if you can't see "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" keys in Registry, then following steps will help you:

1. Open Registry Editor and go to following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\


2. Create a new key Controller0 under atapi key.


3. Select the new Controller0 key and in right-side pane, create new DWORD EnumDevice1 and set its value to 1

4. Close Registry Editor and restart your system.
That's it. Now you'll be able to see your CD/DVD drive in My Computer window.
