    Hi there
    Both my CD Rom and DVD Rom doesn't work .Usualy it show an icon for both of these dirves in My Computer but it doesn't show anything in My Computer.Seems like I don't even have these drives.
    I cant use both drives cuse there is no Icon for them even if I put a CD in there it does't do anything.
    I went to Device properties and its giving me this message "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)"
    Help
    Thanks

    Create a text file with the following stuff in it exactly as below and name it FIXCD.REG

    Double click on the file and say yes to the merge into registry question.

    ----------------------- cut after this line, contents of FIXCD.REG -----------------------------
    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}]
    "UpperFilters"=-
    "LowerFilters"=-

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Cdr4_2K]

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Cdralw2k]

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Cdudf]

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\UdfReadr]

    Hi,

    I had the exact problem and I assumed it had to do with Yahoo's Music Engine. Whenever I uninstalled this lousy software, I'd lose my drives. After editing the registry after the uninstall, my drivers were once again intact.
