Question about Lite On LH-20A1P (0844149002088) Burner
I have tried to get my drive to work again through deleting upper and lower registry filters, disable and re-enable and uninstall, reboot, have the system reinstall. I can't really think of anything else to try. My computer shows a DVD-RAM but when I click on it, nothing shows up, even when a CD is inserted. The drive is not reading or writing CDs. I have had the computer less than one year, and I am running Windows XP. Thanks for any help you can give.
Drive is ng - time to go shopping or check if drive is covered under warranty. Happens.

After loading the Windows, the DVD/CD-ROM drives work properly, but we can not see the drives in “My Computer” (System can not recognize the drives.). When try to run the drives, it shows up a notice “Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code39).” Before solving this error, check the drives connection correctly, then follow the steps below:
Delete Device Manager. Most people will firstly think of Windows “Find New Hardware” when drives missed, but it does not always work out. To fix the problem: open “My Computer”’ “Control Panel” ’“System”’“Device Manager”’ “HDC(Hard Disk Controller) ”, then click “Delete”. Follow the note to reboot computer. After rebooting, the computer will find the Primary IDE Controller and Secondary IDE Controller again and install the drivers. Restart the computer again while the installation is completed. In this, we can get back our CD/DVD-ROM Drives.
The other way is by editing the registry to return the missed CD/DVD-ROM drives (Code 39 error.). Obviously, it is too risky to edit the registry if you are not familiar with it. To fix the error from the registry, carry out the following steps:
Exit and close all applications currently running on your PC.
Step1. Click Start > Run and type in Regedit, press Enter.
Step2. Look for the following registry key:
Delete any of the following registry entries under this key directory:
Step3. Reboot your PC and open My Computer to check that the CD-ROM drive is visible.
Also, have a look at the Device Manager to see if the yellow exclamation mark and the error code 39 are gone.

Try double click My computer than right click the drive you want than properties than recording tab and make sure that Enable CD recording to his drive is checked. If you have two CD-R drives only one can be enabled to record at a time.
