My DVD Drive & DVD/CD Burner aren't working. I checked in the Devce Manager and found that I had Code 19 on the DVD Drive(Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged.) and a Code 41 on the Burner (Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device). Does anyone know how to fix these so I can use at least the DVD Drive again, without having to reinstall the OS (thought it wouldn't load).

P.S: I was aboe to use the DVD Drive before July, I forgot the excact date.

Just the classic method:
Disconnect your CD/DVD drives. Boot. Open Device Manager. Delete everything that is related to CD/DVD drives. Shut down. Reconnect your devices. Boot Up. See device manager. Windows may have installed the 'new' devices. If not, start "Add Hardware" wizard, make it look for new plun'n'play devices. It should find something...
