If you don’t want to modify Registry yourself, this is a easy way to fix it. Fred Van December 18, 2014 You guy very welcome, I been try to fix my dvd drive for week, that why I come across this site. Fred Van December 18, 2014 Make sure after install the Fix CD/DVD. Please Restart the Computer! Steve DL December 18, 2014 So all I need to do is what you just did ? Is that it ? WTF did you just do ? Windows, in it`s wisdom, has removed the ability to play DVD`s. And you have to be a fucking PC Engineer to understand how to be able to get your DVD Drive back. What will Microsoft come up with next ? Remove the ability to use a PC without knowing how to solve decomposition of the quadratic formula ? It is all becoming counter intuitive.

MrBrodernafluff December 18, 2014 A warning for anyone uppgraded to 8.1 from 8, you might get rollback to windows 8… atleast i did so for me it took a couple of hours to first roll it back, then install a whole bunch of uppdates to be able to finaly reinstall 8.1 Vladimir Tcherednikov December 18, 2014 It worked with direct registry changes in Method 2 by adding Controller0 ! Thank you very much معاني فريدة December 18, 2014 Thank you very much .. my problem has been fixed yay ! btw.. the music is really loud I barely hear your voice :o QaibFresnoCali December 18, 2014 Thank You! it’s work, my cd/dvd Drive is back in action. A+ Ashen Perera December 18, 2014 Thank you very much bro. worked for me (y) Kyle MM December 18, 2014 Good job worked well :) david400p December 18, 2014 Here is a easy solution. I just did it. Insert Windows 8 CD. Go to reset windows to a earlier version. For exaple 2-3 weeks earlier before the DVD-CD problem. You wont lose any files or programs. Only those you installed the last 2-3 weeks. And IT WORKS!! For me this was the only way to fix this problem. joshe bernadel December 18, 2014 Is this for an external cd drive Arpad Papp December 18, 2014 Thank you!
