Windows 7: Boot Ready CDs/DVDs won't boot even after they are boot ready!

Well a warning first: I'd recommend doing this only if you're comfortable messing around in the registry and know how to backup/restore/recover if something goes wrong.

First go into Device Manager, find your drive and open its Properties window, click on the Details tab, then find and take note of what shows up for GUID, class lower filters and class upper filters.

Then check out: How To Delete the UpperFilters and LowerFilters Registry Values

I just went back to re-read the first few posts of this thread and am thinking the solution above might not be a solution afterall.

Seems some sort of firmware problem or hardware components failing intermittently.

Hardware might be failing.
The solution didn't work as you said.
Do you think this is normal though. The top one being the device class guid.

Sorry but yeah, looks ok to me.

Sure would've been nice if you ran across an easy fix, huh?

Right.
Well; so far, we have tried at least.
If hardware is failing, it is failing; no solution to that. Our work was to see if it was or not.
Thanks to everybody who helped.

You're welcome!

Let us know of any new developments. Especially if you find some consistent pattern.

This just came to my mind:



Why it is showing as 'incorrect function'?
Isn't something wrong here?

g is the DVD Drive.

That happens when I put a CD with data in it, but when it sees it as blank in Windows Explorer. When the drive is empty, it says 'The device is not ready'.

I also says incorrect function when I put an empty CD in.

Get the same "incorrect function" with a blank DVD-RW, Explorer shows it as free space and when trying to browse throws up "What do you want to do with this disc?"

When drive is empty Cmd says "device not ready" and WE says "Insert a disk".

Threw in a bad DVD-RW but with both Cmd and WE I could get a directory listing, just couldn't open any files.
