Try re-installing Sony's drivers first. That's certainly less drastic.

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.

Hi, My computer doesnt recognize the cd\dvd drive....

Hello there!
You won't probably be able to find drives because Sony, the makers of Optiarc, rely on Windows to supply the drivers.

You can right click the devices and remove them. If Windows asks, check the box to removed files as well.

Then reboot the computer. That may do it on it's own.

If not, run Windows update, and make sure to check the section about optional updates.

Driver for SONY CDRW/DVD drive seems to be corrupt. Help, anybody

Go to my computer, and right click on it, when the window opens
click on properties, when window opens find devise mgr and click on it.

When devise mgr opens, look for cd/dvd rom drives, click on the little
sign in front of this and it will expand, and you will see the dvd drive.

Right click on the drive and when the window opens click on properties, now at the top you will see a driver tab, click on the driver tab, and it should say microsoft for the driver provider.

The drivers for the rom drives is built into windows,

Now click on the general tab, in the box, does it say this devise is working, or does it say the devise is not working.

You can go back to driver tab, and click on update driver, let it search
the internet for a driver, follow the instructions, it will either say it has the best driver, or it will find one and install it and you have to restart the system,

If the driver is there, and the unit says its working, then it is the drive that is bad, and you might have to buy a new one.

If you get any error codes or if it says anything, you can post back
so we can get this problem fix,if possible.

Hi, the error code that you have on the CD/DVD drive is a known issue from Microsoft. The error code means "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (code 39)".
Since you are using a Toshiba laptop; you can click on this link and click on the repair tool on the resolution. This is applicable on both Windows Xp and Vista and will delete the upper/lowerfilters on the registry.

In case that the error code still exist you need to manually delete the upper/lowerfilters under the registry by clicking on this link . You need to go the "Run" screen then type in "regedit" and click OK or hit the enter key.

This will surely fix the error code that you have on the CD/DVD drive.
