Under Device Manager, the problem is described like this for my DVD drive:

"Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)"

The same thing happened to the virtual BD drive installed with Daemon Tools Lite, too, if that helps any. I can also open and close the DVD drive with the button on it.

I booted up my computer just today and saw that the drives were in working order before I uninstalled iTunes. I had done nothing before uninstalling iTunes, so I'm certain that that caused the issue.

I haven't tried "repairing" my system yet, but I don't know what exactly I would do to repair it. Anyone else ever run into this problem? Running Windows 7 64-bit, by the way.

Try CCleaner Registry Cleaner.

CCleaner is good for finding the basic stuff, but Eusing free registry cleaner will find EVERYTHING... of course this includes those items automatically added by windows so when you clean everything out and do a 2nd pass to make sure you'll always see something pop up...

I'm not interested in using a registry cleaner unless it's the only option.
