Your CD or DVD drive can't read or write media

Gud Morn MadsBP,

Now let's see if I can find my link to the cure for your problem.

Writeup dates back to the XP days but is still valid. I had to use the procedure once myself after some unruly software messed things up.

1. WIN key (that's the one with the wavy flag)
type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit in the Programs list.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
2. Locate, and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Caution There can be many instances of the registry subkey that is mentioned in step 2. You must make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the UpperFilters and the LowerFilters values. To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the Default data value is DVD/CD-ROM and the Class data value is CDROM.
3. In the right pane, right-click UpperFilters, and then click Delete.
4. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the UpperFilters registry entry.
5. In the right pane, right-click LowerFilters, and then click Delete.
6. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the LowerFilters registry entry.
7. Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.

Now that's not the original write-up. Guess I should search my old posts.
But if you find those Upper/lower keys then delete them.

Sound like Deamon Tool could be the culprit i've heard it doesn't play well with Win 7, i would first boot into bios and make sure the drives are On

Usually when you do a restart as soon as you see the first screen start pressing F2 key, that should take you into bios, then use the arrow keys and the enter key to see if the cdrom drive is set to auto. to get out do esc save changes enter and your done
