One read-only DVD that will write CD's. Other drive is read/write CD's & DVD's. When trying to create a system repair disc, message says no cd/dvd drives found. ??? Thanks.

Are you seeing either or both of your optical drives in
1. Device manager?
2. Disk management?

The ROM drive shows up in Disk & Device managers. The write-able drive does not show up in either.

Well, you managed to "Quote" my reply, but you didn't mention if it worked for you.
That information would be helpful, even if it didn't.

I last posted that the fix you recommended did not work. After a bit, a light bulb came on in my head The command I ran was REGEDIT, which modified the registry. I needed to reboot. When it came back up the problem was fixed! Thank you so much!

Thank you for posting back and updating us with that information.
