Computer troubles

i’m sitting here tearing my hair out. i’ve been trying to figure out something for the past hour or so. i even had to turn off the tv to concentrate fully on it. but to no avail.
I want to rip some cd’s. so the drive in my laptop is broken. so I bought a USB external drive. and it works, because I’ve been using another programme to rip dvd’s without any issues. But tonight when I went to rip some cd’s the programme I use which is cd EX wouldnt recognise that there was a cd in the drive, it didnt even recognise the drive.
I dont know whats going on! I went into my device manager and the drive shows up as being in there! very strange indeed.
its driving me nutty. I really wanted to get started doing this tonight. I emailed a friend asking her if she knew what was going on. I also emailed a tech list I am a part of to see if anyone on there has any answers.
Its probably something very simple. Wait and see it totally will be lol. Then I’ll feel so stupid.

  1. Do a google search for upper and lower filters in the registry. that may be the cause of your problem. be sure to back up anything before editing the registry as you can break things easy. but there should be some easy instructions to follow online. Hope that helps. 😉


  2. I’ve no idea what can be wrong, I never ripped any CD’s, so I think I can’t help you, but yeah, very often such weird things with computers or other tech stuff have quite easy solutions, so hope so it’s in your case and you’ll be able to fix it quickly. However I admire your patience, I really doubt if I could sit with it for an hour not finding any source of the problem, I would be pissed off very quickly I think. 😀
