Drive E: has Distribution CVD for Turbo-Tax.. Drive does not see the CD.
drive F: Has AnyDVD Software. and Drive can see the DVD


What are the upper and lower filters?

And do I need to delete and re-install any software to fix this problem?

You're going to have to be a little clearer. In your original post, you said a VOS not a VSO report. What do you mean by a CVD for Turbo Tax? Did you mean a CD?

Now, to the problem. Is only problem that one drive can't see the turbo tax CD but it's readable from the other?

VSO Inspector Report.

Notice filters listed at the end of each drive report.

Drive E not working and drive F can't write - See detail report for drive F.

Perhaps I need to update the firmware and/or drivers.

Can you recommend a few sites? Or maybe ide controller issue.

YES/NO -

Had problems with the Lite-On drive a few years back. Did a firmware upgarde which fixed the problem and also gave me a dual layer drive.

Just recently installed anydvd and both drives were working okay. That was two weeks ago.

Installed a new C dirve and did a total install fo XP/Pro. Perhaps I missed a few drivers.

I don't know why you reinstalled the system drive but so many people reinstall for the craziest reasons. You might have to uninstall anydvd, correct the driver problem and then reinstall anydvd again.

System crashed due to hard drive failure therefore I had to replace the drive.

Can you recommend a forum where I may get some help with understanding the VSO report?

Site to get updated drivers? Like Driverguide, Version Tracker, etc.

Site to get firmrware to update DVD and or CD-ROM ?

I will remove anydvd software to see if anything changes and give you an update.

However, I am really interested in what and how the upper and lower filters work. (see VSO Report in previous thread).

The first place I start when I am looking for drivers and firmware is the manufacturer's website. Typically that is the only place you should be looking.
