If you had lost your CD/DVD drive in Windows XP but you do not know how to return it and make it visible again then you should fallow steps below. With small procedure and small file which you have to create you CD/DVD drive will be visible again.

I suppose that you do not have problems with your drivers and that they are installed if not first install necessary drivers and if your CD/DVD drive is still invisible in your Windows XP than fallow next steps:

1. Open new Notepad file by clicking Start –> All Programs –> Accessories –> Notepad,

2. Now after you created new notepad file inside him paste below code:

Option Explicit
On Error Resume NextDim WshShell, Message

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”)

WshShell.RegDelete “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Contr ol \ Class\ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} \ UpperFilters”
WshShell.RegDelete “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Contr ol \ Class \ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} \ LowerFilters”
WshShell.RegDelete “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Servi ces \ Cdr4_2K \”
WshShell.RegDelete “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Servi ces \ Cdralw2k \”
WshShell.RegDelete “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Servi ces \ Cdudf \”
WshShell.RegDelete “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Servi ces \ UdfReadr \”
Set WshShell = Nothing

Message = “Your CD/DVD-Rom drives should now appear in Windows Explorer.” & vbCR
Message = Message & “You may need to reboot your computer to see the change.”

MsgBox Message, 4096,”Finished!”

3. Now click File –> Save As –> name it CD_DVD.VBS (do not forget .VBS extension) and save it on your desktop.

4. After you saved that file double click on him from your desktop. Now you CD/DVD drive should show up. If he is still not visible then restart your computer so changes take effect.
