|I've run Fixit before, and also checked the registry for Upper Filters. I just checked again, using the link you supplied, with the same result. There's no mention of Upper Filters at that registry location.|
I just ran a different Microsoft FixIt and it came back with "we did not detect any problems..."
At the same time I continue to get the Event Viewer paging operation error mentioned above. And occasionally an Event Viewer information line " the IMAPI CD-burning COM Service service entered the stop state.
I've checked with different types of disks and there are some where I can see the folders inside, and one where I could see the files inside a folder and even read a text file. But most of the time I just get a blank window(with it's address shown as Z: and with a disk icon shown next to the address bar) when I use My Computer or VLC to try to access a disk.
What a vexing problem. When I need to use the CD-ROOM device I have to boot up with Hiren's and use miniXP. It always works there.
