Windows 7: DVD Drive not reading CD's

OK, now don't let all that scare you.

That's why its best to see what filters you do have installed and then you can bounce them against your burning programs.

You can then delete the filters that are not needed based on what you have installed.

If you just go and delete all the upper and lower filters you will find that none of your burn programs will work until you reinstall the all again.

Filters look clean.

Do you have another Burner that you can toss in the system?

I am thinking that you are experiencing a dieing drive.
