Each hardware device has it's own unique driver, developed by the hardware manufacturer, that contains the instructions allowing the hardware device to cooperate with other hardware devices and communicate with the operating system. Drivers are essential to the normal operation of any computer as they bridge the gap between hardware software.
Code 39 errors are amongst a wide array of device manager errors that all point to the same problem: the driver. It is not uncommon for drivers to become corrupted and produce errors during normal operation. Drivers are accessed constantly for every operation that a hardware device performs. Because of this, there are thousands of opportunities for errors during a single session of Windows.

Error code 39


Error code 39 means your CD drive or DVD drive is missing or not recognized by Windows or other programs, so you cannot play or access a CD or DVD.

This issue might have occurred after you installed, uninstalled, or updated a program or Windows Vista.

Also make sure the DVD drive is enabled in the Bios
