My (ancient) Packard Bell PC (Windows XP home) has suddenly stopped playing DVDs.
Device Manager gives the '!' in a yellow circle for "H + H DVD-ROM DVD-41SD SCSI CdRom Device" x3 and HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4320B.
When I troubleshoot it tells me to uninstall and then Add New Hardware. I've tried this several times but each time I get this message:
"Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)"
I saw an old thread in which someone was able to fix a similar problem by creating a text file to fix the CD Registry. Might this work for me?
Please help...

The drive is supposed to play DVDs and CDs, but I've just checked and it isn't playing CDs either.
