Computer doesn't show DVD/CD drive

DVD/CD drive doesn't work. My computer doen't even show the drive. Device manager info say's "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)". I clicked on the check online for a solution and get nothing. Attemped to download a driver update and microsoft site says I have the latest driver.

I'm not very computer savy and at the far end of my ability, anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

My Cd/DVD burner has disappeared I have tried deleting the upper and lower filters and it still doesn't show up the tray opens the light comes on but it's not usable or found anywhere I have an HP...


Try this:

I have to ask, after deleting the upper & lower filters did you reboot the PC?

If so try this:
Go to:
Start>(right click on Computer)left click on Manage.
Left click on Device Manager
Locate your DVD/CD-Rom drives.
Right Click on the DVD/CD Rom-drive> uninstall Now reboot the PC.

If the drive does not come back in Computer> devices with removeable storage go back to Device Manager (Start>right click computer>Device Manager) to see if you can see DVD/CD Rom-drive.If you dont see the drive in this location then it sounds as if your DVD/CDRom-drive is no longer working and you will have to replace it.

Good luck!

I have purchase lenovo Y410 but DVD drive not working since 8 days . Kindly suggest how to resovle this issue Thanks Dinesh


I would 'slap' Windows around, and make it reinstall the drivers for the DVD optical drive.

Vista:

[Note* All clicks are Left-click unless otherwise noted]

1) Click on Start (Windows logo button)

2) Click on Control Panel

3) Click on Device Manager

4) After Device Manager loads all the way, click on the + sign to the left of -
DVD/CD-ROM drives

5) Right-click on the name of the DVD optical drive

6) Click on Uninstall

Windows will come up with a 'squawk box',
"Warning you are about to uninstall this device"

It's okay, click on OK.

Now close all windows, and go back to the desktop screen.
Restart the computer.

When Windows has fully loaded you should get a pop-up out of the system tray,
"Found new hardware device", and perhaps another one will follow,
"Found XXXX optical drive"
(XXXX being the name of the optical drive)

If this doesn't work try cleaning the laser optical eye of the DVD optical drive.

Laptop on open the DVD optical drive tray.
Turn the laptop off.
Remove ALL power to the laptop.
(AC adapter {Charger} and Battery)
Use a can of compressed air for computers.

Or use a disk cleaning device for cleaning CD/DVD optical drives. (Power plugged into the laptop)

I'm Cambodian customer for sony VGN SR25G. now I cannot see the CD Rom driver in window explorie please help me thanks in advance


Go to Device Manager. Uninstall the CDROM.

Vista:
Start>Control Panel>System Maintenance>Double-click on the Device Manager icon.

XP:
Start>Right-click on My Computer>Left-click on Properties>Left-click on the Hardware tab>Device Manager

In Device Manager left-click on the + sign next to - CD/DVD-ROM drives.
Right-click on the name of the CD/DVD drive.
Left-click on Uninstall.

Windows will come up with a warning,
"Warning you are about to uninstall this device."
It's okay. Click on OK.

Close all windows go back to the desktop screen.
Restart your computer.
After Windows loads you should see a pop-up out of the system tray,
"Found new hardware device"

There may be another one that follows,
"Found XXXXX CD/DVD drive"

You've just made Windows match up the driver/s for your CD/DVD drive.
If you cannot use the optical drive now, suspect the laser optical eye may be dirty.
Use a can of compressed air for computers, and clean the optical drive out the best you can.

[Computer has all power removed. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery. The optical drive tray is left open before turning the laptop off, and removing power]

Or use a device for cleaning the optical drive.

If it doesn't work past this point suspect a bad optical drive.

I have a Systemax Venture Microsoft Windows XP Pro Version 2002 Service Pack 3. The system will not longer play dvd's or cd's and cannot burn cd's as well. I'm not sure if something has...


Well the fact that when you put in a cd it does not see it indicates that either the CD Drive is not being detected or the drive has gone faulty and needs replacing.
First Look in the bios of the computer to see if it is seen the drives section. If it is there then look in windows under control panel , system, device manager. Now look under DVD/CD Roms drives (this may differ slightly in XP) to see if in there with no error against it. If not and not in the bios either then the drive has failed. If however it shows in DVD/CD Roms with no error then try a different make of cd/DVD. If this works then the Bios of the drive will need updating. This info is on the manufacturers website. Good luck.

My dvd player used to work now it doesn't even show one is in the computer what doi Do?


Hi Maverick,

Can you get to device manager to see if your drive is installed and recognized by the system.
In windows 7/vista click start and type in 'device manager' in XP click start -> right cick on My computer and select properties and navigate to the device manger tab.

There will be a list of hardware installed in the list and you should find your drive under DVD/CD ROM drives. If there is a yellow exclamation mark - you need to update the drivers using the CD that came with the drive.

If the drive is not showing up in device manager you need to take your comp to a service center as there may be a fault with the controller.

Drive not showing in WinXP (error code 39)Liteon Combo SOHC-5236v


After loading the Windows, the DVD/CD-ROM drives work properly, but we can not see the drives in “My Computer” (System can not recognize the drives.). When try to run the drives, it shows up a notice “Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code39).” Before solving this error, check the drives connection correctly, then follow the steps below:
Delete Device Manager. Most people will firstly think of Windows “Find New Hardware” when drives missed, but it does not always work out. To fix the problem: open “My Computer”’ “Control Panel” ’“System”’“Device Manager”’ “HDC(Hard Disk Controller) ”, then click “Delete”. Follow the note to reboot computer. After rebooting, the computer will find the Primary IDE Controller and Secondary IDE Controller again and install the drivers. Restart the computer again while the installation is completed. In this, we can get back our CD/DVD-ROM Drives.

The other way is by editing the registry to return the missed CD/DVD-ROM drives (Code 39 error.). Obviously, it is too risky to edit the registry if you are not familiar with it. To fix the error from the registry, carry out the following steps:
Exit and close all applications currently running on your PC.
Step1. Click Start > Run and type in Regedit, press Enter.
Step2. Look for the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Delete any of the following registry entries under this key directory:
LowerFilters
LowerFilters.bak
UpperFilters
UpperFilters.bak
Step3. Reboot your PC and open My Computer to check that the CD-ROM drive is visible.
Also, have a look at the Device Manager to see if the yellow exclamation mark and the error code 39 are gone.
