Device not found code41

After installing a new dvd burner, I am getting this message. Drivers were installed for the device but windows can not locat the device. I tryed to install my original cd burner and now get that same message. I have also tryed an external dvd burner with the same results. Why cant the computer find the device if it installed the drivers?

    I was able to fix the problem with the help from someone named Freaky Monkey. He had me delete the upper and lower filters from my regestry under hkey_local_machine\system\currentcontrolset\control\class\{4d36e965-e325e11ce-bfc1-08002be10318} Now I am able to use my dvd burner and my cd dive.

Cant install Windows 7


Makes no sense. All operating systems during install have generic drivers designed to work the installing drive. If you are getting this message it has to be bogus and I suggest trying another dvd drive in its place.

LG dvd external drive not recognized by computer


ERROR 43? Check your SATA connection.
HERE'S HOW I FIXED MINE.
(IE. Computer tries to install driver for BD burner, but ultimately fails, and gives the message. "Unsuccessful" and/or "Microsoft Windows stopped device. Error 43") The SATA CONNECTION on my BD burner's EXTERNAL CASE had gone bad.
TO TEST IT. I used a SATA/IDE to USB Adapter Cable I bought for about $10 on amazon.
  • I unscrewed the external case to get at the internal drive, and plugged the SATA adapter cable directly into the internal BD burner drive (bypassing the case assembly), and plugged the other end into my computer USB port.
    • PS My BD burner POWER was working OK, so I left the big white 4pin power adapter connected to the original external case.

VOILA! Both my laptop and my desktop PC recognized the LG BD burner again and assigned it a drive letter (like it used to do).

  • Now I either need to (1) Buy a NEW EXTERNAL case ($10 - $30), (2) install it as an internal drive (could get problematic if "ANYDVD" is installed) or (3) just leave it connected via the cheap adapter cable.
It's super EASY (& inexpensive) to TEST this before spending $$$$ on a new equipment.
Hope this helps someone. It had me miffed for a while there.

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.

DVD+/-RW/CD-RW NEC AD-7203S drivers No problem - just simple me need drivers for this device? for installation on other PC, new system not understend this device and ask driver


Windows 2000 & XP & Vista & 7 have "built-in" drivers for *ALL* CD/DVD drives. So, no specific "driver" should be necessary.

What errror-message(s) do you get?

Does Windows ask to connect to the Internet to search for drivers?
Did you permit it to connect?

Is marked with yellow icon and says drivers corrupt or missing


Try running the Windows Troubleshooting utility from the Device Manager. Another thing to try is check for any Optional Updates from Windows that might apply.

Going one step farther, uninstall the device drivers in the Device Manager. You may want to unplug the device from the motherboard or power supply to ensure it doesn't immediately try to reinstall. Reboot the computer to let the registry changes be processed.Shut down and reconnect the cables. Then see if the device is found and the drivers get installed. (Check Windows Update to make sure the drivers aren't waiting to be installed.)

Do I need software to get my comp to recognize a new Mad Dog Multimedia external DVD/burner drive?


Hello

Depending on which version of windows you are using, you might need to install the drivers for the device.

I know XP and older versions have a mush smaller internal driver database than windows vista or windows 7.

You don't necessarily need to install software to operate the device, just need the driver installed, then your computer will recognize the device.

Hope this can help you.

Kind regards
Andrea

Did you try using Nero or Roxio? Don't only rely on the standard Windows support for CD/DVD writing.
Did you connect the new hdd the same way as the old hdd, or did you add it to the same cable as the CD/DVD writer perhaps? If multiple IDE devices are on the same cable, the master slave setting can cause problems. If you are using SATA devices, that should not be a problem.

Drivers are not required for IDE devices, including most CD/DVD writers, so don't bother with that.

First; right click set up program fro your DVD drivers set up software and chose properties, then click on "compatibility tab" and place a check mark in the "run this program in compatibility mode " close up properties for program and try to install. if this doesn't work then try extracting the drivers to a setperate folder on your disk and run the driver update wizard from the device manager in windows, tell it NOT to search for a driver to install that you will install from a list or other location and navigate to the folder where you extracted your drivers and choose the drivers you downloadedd for you burner then reboot
