    Default Stealth drives not showing up.

    Ok, I read all the topics about this problem. It seems that windows isn't loading the proper inf and pnf files for the cd-rom. But nobody posted a way to resolving this. I don't understand why anyone would say "Oh it's because windows isn't loading the right drivers" and not offer a solution!!! Can someone please tell me how to fix this. I get an error saying "Unit is locked" whenever I try to unmount an image. And when I check the driver details in device manager, it seems like its missing two files: cdrom.sys and redbook.sys. How can this problem be rectified?

    If you've read all the other topics about this, why was it necessary to create yet another topic for this? You could as well have answered to the previous posts...

    People, PLEASE help keeping the forum a tidy place...

    I created a new topic because this is problem that has not been fixed and that many people are experiencing. Oh, and thanks for nothing by the way.

    Instead of complaining you should give us more info about your system - cpu, board, ram, hdd, cd/dvd/-rw-drives, SCSI/RAID-Controllers ... and the software, e.g. virus scanners, firewalls, other cd-recording software (Roxio Easy Coaster Creator, WinOffCD and stuff like that) youґve installed.
    And there is no solution to this strange problem as we do not know why it is happening! Daemon Tools is tested on all MS OSs by a group of beta testers, I am testing it with Win95b, Win98SE and Win2k SP3 - nothing like this has ever happend to me ... same goes for disappearing cd-drives ... but this usually happens because of some other crappy drivers ... so we have to figure out what is the problem on YOUR system - so we will find a solution.

    OK here goes:

    WinXP Pro
    AMD XP 2400+
    512 DDR RAM
    Some Mobo (ASUS, forgot the model)
    GeForce 4 Ti4400
    Maxtor 60GB 7200rpm
    Sony DVD 16x
    HP cd-writer 8200
    No SCSI or RAID.
    no virus scanners.
    no firewall.
    CloneCD.
    ISOBUSTER.
    Never installed roxio ez cd creator.
    It actually worked fine before on my previous PC, but after I installed my new processor, mobo and RAM this happened. So it must be processor, mobo, or RAM related. I will check the name of the mobo that I have and post it here when I have the chance.

    Edit: The motherboard's name is A7V333. And After installing the new components I reformatted my HD, so any previously installed software should have no effect on the system.

    The fix to this problem was given hundreds of times - install driver for CDROM manually by selecting standard CDROM device in cdrom.inf!

    Well I did a search for cdrom.inf and I couldnt find it on my HD. It would be nice if you can decribe the solution more clearly. By the way during the installation windows detects a new scsi contoller called ST324KJ SCSI controller and it asks me whether I want to install it or not. I tell it to install the SCSI controller and Daemon continues installing afterwards. In the Device manager the only SCSI controller I have is the ST324KJ, but at my friends house the one he has is called Virtual Daemon SCSI contoller.

    In previous versions the Daemon Tools controller was named "Virtual Daemon SCSI Controller" but some suckers of copy protection developers decided to blacklist all devices connected to the "Virtual Daemon SCSI Controller" so the name is changed from version to version in a combination of letters and numbers - no chance for blacklisting this stupid way anymore ... unfortunately they do not stop this idiotic blacklisting stuff :evil:

    OK, so can someone tell me how to install the cd-rom manually by using the cdron.inf when I don't even know where that inf file is?

    cdrom.inf is distributed with OS and should be present in WINDOWS\INF folder.
