    Try This. (shown below) As always use caution when editing the registry and be sure to back it up first. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.

    Remove the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters values completely from the following registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

    NOTE: If you are getting a code 39 message, it may be that additional third-party filter drivers were added to UpperFilters and LowerFilters values in addition to Adaptec filter drivers. In that case, you may try to remove the non-Adaptec filter drivers first, leaving the Easy Creator filters in place to see if the Code 39 goes away. If you still receive an error code 39, 32, or 31 message, remove the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters values completely in the preceding key.


    Restart your computer

    ok, this is cause you need to install the good driver of your sound card. but it's the second standard game port, so I think you have more than one sound card in your PC. The one on the motherboard and another one in a PCI slot. You'll need to desable the one you are not using.

    For your cd-rom, what's your cd-rom model? I need the model, the brand and the speed. I'll find for ya the driver on the net.

    Another problem can be the source. Have you installed this drive lately? Maybe your Jumper configuration isn't good.

    A Jumper is a small square piece on the back of the drive, next to the large grey cable. You have the option Master, Slave and Cable. If your hard drive is pluggued with the same big grey cable than your cd-rom, then put the jumper to Slave. If each of them have a big grey cable, put the jumper to Master.
