Hi, The DVD/CD Rom Icon has dissapeared on My Computer. When I go to control panel - device manager and click on the dvd/cd rom drive icon I get the following message in the genaral...


You will need to re-install the driver. Right click the device in device manager and select properties. Navigate to the driver section and uninstall all existing drivers. (It may *not* give you the option to do that, depending on how corrupted the driver is, but it should.)
Reboot the PC.
Upon reboot, Windows should find the new device and install generic drivers. It will probably ask you to reboot a second time.

My slimtype dvd ads8a4sh drive seems to have lost it's drivers and I dont know how to get them


CD/DVD drives usually dont need drivers loading, windows has built in drivers.
Try going into device manager and deleting the drive from there, windows will then re load the drivers.
If it still wont work, it may have failed

TSSTcorp CDW/DVD TS-L462D Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware because a previous instance of the device driver is still in memory. (Code 38)


What windows is this?
Who is the maker of the laptop?
  • Turn the computer off, remove the DVD drive and restart.
  • look for the drive in device manager
Windows xp – Start button>run> type devmgmt.msc
Vista/Windows 7 – start button> in the search box type devmgmt.msc
  • Remove or un-install the cd/dvd drive
  • turn off the computer
  • Put the drive back in
  • Restart the computer
  • Install your driver or allow the driver to install
If it continues to fail then either replace the drive or look in the component's properties, click the drivers tab and delete these drivers from windows system32 folder. You will need the windows installation disk to restore these drivers.
