  2. CD-Rs won't open.

    The CD-Rs are anything from 5 to 8 years old. I stopped using XP in 2011. But as I said, these discs would open on the Windows 7 computer without hassle. I also mentioned in my post that no, I haven't been able to try opening them on another system. Everyone
    I know seems to have tablet PCs nowadays or Macs. I'll try the other suggestions anyway and report back. Thanks for the advice.

    CD drive error

    1) Close all open programs
    2) Click on Start, Run, and type REGEDIT and press Enter
    3) Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    SYSTEM
    CurrentControlSet
    Control
    Class
    {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
    4) This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

    UpperFilters
    LowerFilters
    UpperFilters.bak
    LowerFilters.bak
    5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
    6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor
    7) Reboot your computer
    8) Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

    And it likely has something to do with the emulated drive you have listed there.

  4. open a cd

    CD-Rs won't open.

    Hello,

    • How old is the CDR exactly? When did you write it?
    • Did you try it on a different system?
    As the disc was written on a different OS platform as well as an older writing application, there is a possibility the CD might be obsolete or corrupted.
    I suggest you to check the status of the issue on a different computer and see if the files appear. Further, try the below steps to check if the files are visible.

    • Click search box, and then type cmd.
    • Right-click cmd in the Programs list, and then click Run as administrator.
    • If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue.
    • In front of the CD/DVD drive letter, type DIR and check if you’re able to find the files.
    Hope it helps.
