Hi, the error code that you have is a known issue from Microsoft that needs a registry tweaks. Error code means "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (code 39)" . You can click on this link for your reference http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929461/en-us

To resolve this problem, remove the affected filter drivers. To do this, follow these steps:1. Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit in the Programs list.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
2. Locate, and then click the following registry subkey:

Caution There can be many instances of the registry subkey that is mentioned in step 2. You must make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the UpperFilters and the LowerFilters values. To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the Default data value is DVD/CD-ROM and the Class data value is CDROM.
3. In the right pane, right-click UpperFilters, and then click Delete.
4. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the UpperFilters registry entry.
5. In the right pane, right-click LowerFilters, and then click Delete.
6. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the LowerFilters registry entry.
7. Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.


This will surely help you resolve your issue. Good Luck!!!
Thanks

Acer aspire 4520 windows 7 CD ROM Drives


If your asking which driver you would need for your CD Drive. The answer is you don't need a special driver for it. If it's not working then you could try cleaning the laser lens with a CD laser lens cleaning kit. If that doesn't work then you need to replace the CD drive.

Cd/dvd drive missing on my computer


Enter in the BIOS and see in the boot order or the internal units if the dvd unit is still there. If it isn't then it's dead, replace it.
If it is then you didn't do a correct reinstall. Enter the bios again and make sure the dvd unit is the first in the boot order, boot from a Linux Live-CD like PCLinuxOS and from Computer Management/ Hard Disks  delete all partitions, format the entire disk to something else then format it again to NTFS or FAT. This is the only way you can be sure you are doing a clean install.
