    After of year of working, my external USB DVD burner would not load the
    device driver. The hardware was correctly recognized in Vista 64-bit (as
    well as in my BIOS). I tried uninstalling/reinstalling, using other USB
    ports, trying to update driver, and booting in Safe Mode. Nothing worked.
    Odd thing is that when I did check to update the driver Vista reports I have
    the latest version of the driver installed. So, I assumed it was a bad drive
    and bought a new one today (different brand) - same thing. Any solutions or
    ideas on this? Thanks, Tom

    Thanks Carlos, that was the solution (and thanks for all the great help you
    give on this newsgroup). But, does anyone know what these "filters" are and
    how to prevent this from happening again?
