    Hi,

    I have the problem that WinCDEmu is not working on my Windows 7 Ultimate (32-Bit). I had installed V3.1 one month ago and it worked perfectly. As I wanted to mount an ISO image yesterday it failed for unknown reasons (no new drive and no error indication). So I

    • Uninstalled V 3.1, Rebooted[/*:2tyviaxp]
    • Ran wcdcleanup, Rebooted[/*:2tyviaxp]
    • Installed the latest V3.3.1, Rebooted[/*:2tyviaxp]

    After this mounting an ISO image started the installation of a new device driver which timed out after 5 minutes with error 0x000005b4 which is just the error code for timeout (see the attached extract of setupapi.dev.log). One main difference of installed software on my system between the working state and the current state of failure is the installation of iTunes in the meantime which was already mentioned as a trouble maker in other threads.

    Any ideas what might go wrong ?

    As described in another topic, check for additional CD/DVD filter drivers:

    Select “start->run” or press “Windows key + R key”, type “regedit”.
    Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SYSTEM -> CurrentControlSet -> Control -> Class
    Press “Ctrl+F”, type “cdrom”, press ENTER.
    Ensure that the “{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}” class was selected on the left.
    Carefully examine the values on the right. If anything like “UpperFilters”, “LowerFilters” or anything else containing the word “filter” appears there, please either post the values here, or make a screenshot of your regedit window.

    Thank you for your quick reply and hints.

    There is indeed an upper filter driver defined. It’s the GEARAspiWDM driver 2.2.0.1 of GEAR Software Inc. After renaming the registry key UpperFilters into _UpperFilters followed by a reboot WinCDEmu works again like charme. I know the above solution is just a hack as one can have several upper filter drivers, etc.

    My initial assumption was right because this filter driver was installed together with the iTunes (Norton Ghost and Norton 360 also use this driver according to the GEAR Software Wiki).

    Starting iTunes with the modified registry I get an error message box that burning/ripping CDs is no longer possible and I have to re-install iTunes. Thankfully the program continues to start after clicking OK. As I consider this apple software as a pain in the ass with all of the useless services running in background after installation and just use it to synchronize mp3s, apps, etc. I can live with this. Of course it would be great if WinCDEmu would be able to work even if this filter is installed.

    Try installing the latest trial of GearDVD. The version of GearASPIWdm that comes with it does not conflict with WinCDEmu. Moreover, it the Gear installer “understands” that GearASPIWdm is also needed by iTunes, uninstalling the trial will still keep the latest version of the filter.

    The latest trial of GEAR DVD I can download is V 7.03 RC 19. This doesn’t seem to update the GEARAspiWDM to a newer version and all files installed for this application are from January 2007. Ther is also a Driver Update package which seemed quite promising but it also didn’t update the filter driver to a newer revision.

    Do you know the required revision of the GEARAspiWDM to work with WinCDEmu ?

    That’s just brilliant. Apparently, the Gear installer (file was called Download GEARDVD703rc19 now.exe) installed the 32-bit filter driver (that was of course ignored on 64-bit Windows), but updated the “UpperFilters” key, making me believe that the driver was there. So, no “GearDVD over iTunes” recipe” will work, unfortunately 🙁
    I’ll try to investigate the GEAR-related problems later and maybe add some workaround, but I cannot promise anything, as gear stuff seems to be a big buggy mess, and I don’t want to support CD/DVD burning/identification commands in WinCDEmu, as this may come out twice more complex than the current WinCDEmu code.

    This is a well-known bug in version 3.1. Please install WinCDEmu 3.3

    I had the same problems with 3.3 – installing driver times out, must do a hard power off to shut down, etc., and renaming the Upperfilters registry entry fixed it for me. I never use iTunes to write to disc, so I don’t care if the fix disables that functionality. I would recommend putting this solution on a help or FAQ page.

    This is related to poorly designed CDROM filters provided by 3rd-party software. Please search for GearASPIWdm on this forum.
