Uninstalling and then reinstalling the drivers for the device is a likely solution to a Code 37 error, especially if the error is showing up on a device other than a BD/DVD/CD drive.

Important: If a USB device is generating the Code 37 error, uninstall every device under the Universal Serial Bus controllers hardware category in Device Manager as part of the driver reinstall. This includes any USB Mass Storage Device, USB Host Controller, and USB Root Hub.

Note: Correctly reinstalling a driver, as in the instructions linked above, is not the same as simply updating a driver. A full driver reinstall involves completely removing the currently installed driver and then letting Windows install it over again from scratch.

I had this problem going into the new year of 2011. If there are not registry editions such as Upper or Lower keys present, then try this solution because many times this is not the case as people will say. The alternative to registry editing is the following:

1) Disconnect your internal optical drive.
2) Go to the Device Manager and select
3) Under DVD/CD-ROM drives, uninstall all of your drives.
*Preferably you want to uninstall the one that is not working. But likely it won't show.
4) Select under Action menu, scan for hardware changes.
5) Place your optical drive back into your computer and then
6) Repeat step 4.
7) Next, you should see your computer checking for any hardware additions or compliant plug and play devices.
8) Check your device manager and all of your drives should automatically reinstall themselves including the one that was missing.
This worked for me and I hope it will for you.
If you want, you could try check the registry for the Upper level and lower levels, and use that method to be sure, but you likely don't need to if my method works for you.

Hi,

Which type of hardware you loaded the driver? If its WLAN or Bluetooth, then check function button for wlan and bluetooth is power ON. Or you are not loading proper driver or your hardware is not available.

Windows cannot initialize the device driver for this hardware. (Code 37) HDPVR


It means there is a problem with the device driver for the hdpvr. Try uninstalling the drivers, rebooting and then reinstalling the driver for it.
In some cases it can also mean a registry problem, where removing the UpperFilter/LowerFilter entries can help:

Code 37 on dvd drive


The Code 37 error may occur when the concerned device is not connected to the system correctly and when its driver is faulty. A code 10 error is common when you add or remove USB devices or video & sound cards to and from your PC. When these errors occur, you may receive the error message given below.
Windows cannot initialize the device driver for this hardware. (Code 37)
To resolve code 37 errors, first ensure that your device is properly connected to your system. For instance, check all the cables of your printer or check that your sound or video adaptor is properly seated in its slot.
Try to remove and reinstall the device, and run the Add New Hardware Wizard from the Control Panel to see if Windows detects and installs it. If this does not resolve the issue, then update the device driver by performing the following steps:
1. Open Control Panel and select System.
2. In the System Properties dialog box, select Hardware tab, and then click on the Device Manager tab.
3. Scroll down the Device Manager window and identify the faulty hardware from the list.
4. Right-click on the hardware and select Update Driver.
5. Follow the screen instructions to resolve the error.
If these steps do not resolve your error, then the problem might be with your device. Get it checked by an authorized technician.
