    I had that happen and it wouldn't read any disk if it's under Disk drives.

    I have tried uninstalling them and reboot to reinstall drivers no joy. they seem to have quite working after the CU update, I just having really needed them so am only now ready to spend some time to see if I can figure this out.
    I have Windows media player to watch video's and VLC Media player for movies. of course useless if windows can't read the Video files from the DVD players?

    Well I Have had Roxio Creator, installed for a long time Beta tested it for Adaptec.
    Elaborate Bytes Clone DVD2 burning program install for ever. Slysoft Clone CD, I removed CS2 which I have no license for to be honest this issue might have started with that uninstall?

    I did try uninstalling Low and High filter awhile back, that BSOD me had to restore an Image, not sure which one I deleted that cause that?

    With the older Adaptec and even Roxio you very well could have problems with the Upper Drivers........do you have ImgBurn installed, ImgBurn is the easiest and safest way to delete the upper or lower drivers installed or corrupted by burning programs....

    I did just drop in an old CDRW with some old pictures this loaded up and I was able to see the picture files? I am beginning to wonder is perhaps I'm having an DRM issue? I'm not familiar with DRM and computer DVD players perhaps I need to upgrade my DVD Player/Recorder? is this possible

    I'm not ignoring you I just do see adding another burning program with out solving the current issue of not seeing files on DVD or CD I did try an old original copy of office 2000 and it did not load up the files.
