i just bought a brand new computer. (i turned down the $50 warrenty, big mistake)

its a ACER
Windows XP media Center Edition 2005
Amd Sempron Processor 3400+
512mb DDR2 ram
80gb HD
Radeon 1600X Pro.
it also has a Lite-ON DVDRW SHW-160P6S installed on it

for the first 2 months it was like a brand new happy relationship, no problems, everyhting was great. i was even addicted to Civ3... now all of a sudden with out notice my computer wont detect my DVDRW. When i go to my computer to open a CD/DVD the icon is no where to be found....
when i go to my device manager can go to properties of the DVDRW it says "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)"

i tryed installing a known working CDRW... and i got the same message, "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)"

these are plug and play devices, and should work... ive done some reaserch on google and it seems theres other out there like me, but alas all there questions are unanswered as well..

-ive tried, searching for drivers on windows update, and the manufacturers websites, but there are none.
-uninstalling and letting windows detect them
-i also tried uninstalling the IDE channels and letting windows set those up again too.

i did a registry scan, virus scan, malware scan, cat scan, disk defrag

the last thing i can do is clear my hard drive, there has to be a way to fix this problem.

any ideas on how i can get my CD and DVD players working again? :)
