For a long time now I've been using Daemon Tools version v4.03 HE, but ever since I bought Rainbow 6 Vegas 2 I've had to uninstall it or the game won't start. Recently after uninstalling it again to play the game, my physical drives have stopped working (A DVD Drive and a CD-RW). I looked up a solution and found this page on these very forums. I used Microsoft's guided help from the link on that page and then even went into the registery myself to delete the lower filter and upper filter entries. The problem is my physical drives no longer show in Device Manager and the filter entries don't recreate themselves on a reboot. Even deleting the drives and restarting the computer doesn't work, only my virtual drives load. Windows just won't recognise the physical drives, it's like they're not even there.
On advise from an earlier thread on this forum, I downloaded ImgBurn and checked the filter driver load order and this is what I get: Click Me!
No solution I try seems to work, my physical drives may as well not be there. Any help on this would be appreciated, I'd really rather not have to resort to a format or something equally drastic.
