Hello Stevieray,

This may be close to what you used to completely uninstall the driver and device.

Oh. Well, that sort of makes my decision for me. Thanks for the information. Looks like unless I can figure out how to do what stevieray suggests, I'll be doing a new build of the PC again. At least I know that should work without any problems.

I've worked in Windows Registry on various versions over the year, so no fears there. But I would need to know what to do. I am unfamiliar with the term "filters" in regard to the Registry.

When I tried to remove the JBMicron driver, I used the chipset driver disc that had come with my motherboard. I never thought to look in the Windows installed programs section to see if it was there. But, it was. And.....I was able to remove it that way! After a reboot, Device Mgr. now lists the Bluray drive once again.

I'll find out for sure next time I burn a disc if the issue is totally gone.

THANKS GUYS!!

Thanks. I wanted to click the icon to increase your reputation points, but it says I have to "spread some reputation around" before I can click on it. I tried to research this on the rules posting, and found nothing. I am guessing this means I can't keep praising you until I also praise someone else first? Rather strange concept, since I am not on need of anyone else's help at the moment, so it blocks me from showing my appreciation for your help until such time as I get help from another member (which could be months).

However, I am familiar with the things likely being prevented in setting it up that way, how some forums are filled with pointless posts and every one of them ASKS to be thanked. Seems to defeat the purpose of having a thanks system. So I guess a compromise is the only way around that.

Have a Safe and Happy Holiday Season!

So to make this clear, I need a CD with the ISO on it? Is there a way to mount it to an virtual device i.e. damon tools? I really doubt that you can, but I don't know. :s

If you don't want to use a CD/DVD or USB, then you could also just do step 4 in the tutorial on the first page instead.

I started to do that, it got to the last step about 62% and stalled for awhile. Now some of the other steps also stalled at a certain point for sometime about an hour tops. While at this last stall, I kind of dozed of and took a little nap with my laptop right beside me. Then the next thing I know, I'm waking up to my laptop making this awfully, extremely, loud screeching noise. I mean this is nothing like I have heard before. So I was trying to mute my computer and it would not shut up for nothing. It was coming from the speakers and not the computer itself. So I shut my computer off (because I was still very confused on what was even happening since I just woke up). So now I have to restart the whole entire process. Has the noise ever happened to you? I'll be plugging my earphones in (with out them on) next time it gets around that part though.

Oh and why does it stall at some parts? It at least stalled at three different steps not loading anything until a hour later?

Sounds like you may need to bite the bullet, and do a clean install of Windows 7 instead.
