Optical Drive Missing
« on: October 21, 2011, 03:56:49 PM »
Hi all,

There is a conflict with the HP Memory Disk Creator (also known as Memories Creator) and the software Itunes uses to burn disks.  The result of this problem is your optical drive will be missing and Windows will say the optical drive can't start in the Device Manager.  Here is a link to an article with the fix (this will take you out of this forum):

I usually rename the driver to afs.sy_.

If that doesn't work, try following the instructions on this link:

This will take you to our forum.
