Question about Computers & Internet
Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)
Click 'Check for solutions' to send data about this device to Microsoft and to see if there is a solution available.
I check for driver updates and it says i have the correct and most up to date driver but my computer still doesn't recognise it.
Can you help???
There is a whole bunch of helpful stuff at http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/196090-32-lite-dvdrw-160p6s-burning-problems
Seems that the drive may overheat, and will need replacement if in warranty. Some advice given: get another type drive. Also, check the device manager and make sure it's running in DMA mode and not PIO mode. If you have an nForceX mobo and using the SW IDE driver, reinstall with the normal IDE driver and try again. In device manager, check under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. Right-click and select properties on the IDE Channel your DVD recorder is attached to. Transfer mode should be set to "DMA if available". Current transfer mode should be "Ultra DMA Mode 4". If it says Mode 2: Your drive may be experiencing problems which are causing windows to drop its speed. There is a support article with a fix. To surmize:
After the Windows IDE/ATAPI Port driver (Atapi.sys) receives a cumulative total of six time-out or cyclical redundancy check (CRC) errors, the driver reduces the communications speed (the transfer mode) from the highest Direct Memory Access (DMA) mode to lower DMA modes in steps. If the driver continues to receive time-out or CRC errors, the driver eventually reduces the transfer mode to the slowest mode (PIO mode).
If you have dropped from DMA mode 4 to DMA mode 2, and you have a spare ribbon cable, you may want to try swapping it out. Also, if there is another device on the same channel as the DVD drive, try disconnecting it.

SOURCE: What is the comparable drive
IMHO this Lite-On model,
Except it is faster, will read, and burn dual layer disks, and also has LightScribe Technology.
(LightScribe Technology is from HP. You have to use HP disks, (CD or DVD) that are made for LightScribe Technology)
This is the specifications of the Lite-On SHW-160P6S for you to compare against,
This is information about HP's LightScribe Technology,
