Re: Driver/Firmware Problen on a Lite on CDRW
Here ya go straight off the Microsoft Knowledge Base. Geek Squad too lazy to research: Code 41 Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)Recommended resolution
This problem occurs if you install a driver for a non-Plug and Play device, but Windows cannot find the device. Here are some things that you can try to resolve this problem.
If the Troubleshooting Wizard does not resolve the problem, do one of the following:
If the device was removed, uninstall the driver, connect the device, and then click Scan for hardware changes to reinstall the driver.
If the hardware was not removed, the driver files might be obsolete. In this case, update the driver from Device Manager. In the device Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab, and then click Update Driver to start the Hardware Update Wizard. Follow the instructions to update the driver.
If the device is a non-Plug and Play device, you may have to install a newer version of the driver. To install non-Plug and Play devices, use the Add Hardware wizard. Click Start, and then click Run. In the Open box, type hdwwiz.cpl.

You probably have to try to browse to tell windows where the driver is found. Windows is notoriously annoying at this. Try browsing, or telling it you know where the file is, and then comb through the folders and try to find one the looks right. Once you find the right file or folder, the OK button will "ungray" and you can click it to advance. It won't let you tell it an incorrect driver so feel free to try some that sound right, the wrong one won't install.
What my mother always said was Ghosts? More than likely your problem? Should be the disk that came with the Lite-on was a 16 bit app.The pc in the registry is more than likely set to 32 bit app. Easy is to make yourself a copy of the download from lite on for the updated driver.If you deleted go back to them and download another. Copy it to disk, put in the cd,or dvd rom to check thats what you have! Now that you have it, go to control panel remove the disk you first installed that came with your lite on! Also remove it from the trash container on your homepage. Shutdown and restart PC. Now see what Did? If the errors gone If the litedoes everything it is programed to? Your the man! If not, then we go back to control panel and remove the other driver you downloaded from liteon? Go to the homepage and take out the trash.Shutdown and reboot? Then after she restarts and all the startup programs are loaded? We install the one you have on the disk.Open the control panel,set up to install program? Put in the disk with the program liteons Driver disk. After the liteon drivers installed. Go to the shutdown and restart PC. After windows loaded all is idle, then you test the liteon drive.No errors ,is the thing we are searching for.OK shoot me an email to say you're the man !You fixed it? Good luck!
Go to the bios of your system, then check whether the device is detecting or not, if not replace bus cable , check power connectors,
how do you like the solution please rate it i will appreciate your comments
If that lite comes on does it turns your system on or the lite problem only and the sytem is working fine.?
if it happens when charging that the lite does not come on and the system is working then the lite is seeing an error somewhere try to trace it if properly checked and find somewhere then reply and tell me what happened if i have any assistance for you on that. and tell me if it has been doing that before now.
