Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook
HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T10N ATA DEVICE
Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)
My cd/dvd drive stopped working. it says that the driver HL-Dt-St DVDRAM GMA-4082N ATA Device is corrupt. I tried to update this online but found nothing.......... Could not find any file for this in my hard disc. right now I can see any drive other than C: in my computer.
You need to do
1) confirm the dvd driver works ok at other same laptop or find a usb dvd drive adapter to check it works well or not, the dvd driver damage if not
2) check the dvd interface pins (no damage or disconnection) on the motherboard, there is hardware problem that you can not see or heard any lights and driving sounds when the power on

I got the fix from Microsoft and run the exe to fix the "upper" something and after that it can see the CD/DVD drive. I think it is a Windows bug. Not a hardware failure. (Cost me a trip to local store)
