Default No Cd drive in My Computer

I am using windows 2000 and I am having problems with my cd drive its does not show up in my computer and when i put in any cd in the cd drive it starts to make a noise like it is working and than it just stops.

When i went to my hardware wizard there was a litle yellow triangle with ! in it and it told me "This device depends on another device that is not functioning correctly." Device manager error code 31.

If somwould could help me out that would be awsome

Sorry to say, but noisy cd drive is usually dead, or, dying.I suggest you replace it.

The cause doesnt have to be adaptec software, it can be any cd writing application, or application that installs filter drivers to the drive.

Noisy hardware is purely subjective to that particular brand and model and whether its clean or not.

Thank you for the help but im fairly stupid when it comes to anything other than the basics for computers so i still need some help.

On the website it says:
Remove the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters values completely from the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

How do i get to the kkey_local thing do i type it under run or how do i het to it. plz help and thanks for the previouse help

Ok, first thing.

go to start, run adn type regedit and click ok.

In the registry editor that comes up, make sure My computer is highlighted, and click on the registry menu. Choose export. Save it somewhere safe, with a name you will remember.

Download this file. It is a clean registry key that will replace your corrupt one.
Download Me
Save it to your desktop, and then right click, and choose merge.

Reboot for the changes to take effect.

they would most likely reinstall the OS. Most of them don't know how to use a computer, much less fix it.

If you have antivirus installed, it should scan as it downloads.

I'm not sending a virus I am a moderator here, you can trust me

The registry key I uploaded for you is on my own webspace, and is from a newly installed Windows 2000 Service Pack 4.
