Hi marjan425,

there is no need for a driver to be installed since this kind of hardware is supported by any version of Windows by default. Please shut down the laptop, remove the entire drive from the laptop (first have a look in your laptop's manual to find out how to do that!), then restart the laptop, wait for Windows to come up, log in to Windows and then insert the drive again. Now Windows should load the drivers for the drive and make it useable for you. In case it doesn't, the drive is defect most likely. In that case please contact your hardware vendor for a replacement.

Good luck and greetings from Germany,

From your description I understand that the DVD drive is not working and you have code 39 error in device manager.
Do not worry, run the following fix on the pc and then restart the notebook.

Windows vista updated and now my optiarc dvd rw drive won't work


You will have to uninstall the drive and reinstall again. I think the drivers for the drive is not properly installed. But if all this does not work, then I think you will have to do a system restore.
