Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

DVD/CD-ROM driver does not not run any types of disc.

It says "DVD/CD-ROM drives not installed."

Device Status: "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)
Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device."

When I checked the status in Device Manager, I found a little yellow question mark in front of the DVD/CD-ROM drives. Then, I uninstalled it, and tried to find a new hardware (just like what the instruction told me to do). It did find the new hardware, but it said something like ...the driver may be corrupted or missing.

Thank you,

Xu Ling

    Dear Scorpionakku,



    Thanks for your answer, but I have no idea where I can find the OS to install. Should it be a Toshiba recovery and applications/ Drivers DVD that came with the laptop?



    My technical knowledge about computer is pretty low. I'm sorry. :-(



    Thank you,

Dear Xu Ling ,
Its O.S. related problem please try to install this drive on another Computer and i'm sure it will works perfectly. in this case you have to re-install the OS on your Existing Computer, if you wanna use it on your own PC.

    Dear Xu Ling ,
    yes you are right , Toshiba recovery and applications/ Drivers DVD that came with the laptop , but before re-install , my suggestion is ,you should have to backup your important data because after re-install there will be a fresh system in your Laptop.

The DVD/CD drive on my Medion 8830 PC no longer burns


Have you changed or upgraded your OS recently?
Looks like the drivers are corrupt or out-dated.
Might go to your computer mfg support site or the Drive mfg support site and download the latest drivers.
Uninstall whatever drivers are loaded reboot and reinstall fresh copies.

Disc Drive won't read after upgrade to Vista Ultimate


I had a disc Drive that wouldn't work for a while. There are a few things that could be wrong. The first thing I would try is to make sure it's pluged in all the way to both the Motherboard and the Disc Drive. Maybe it wasn't secure in there and when you bumped you computer just a little bit, it got unpluged. The wire connecting the Disc Drive to the Motherboard is probably your thinkest wire, can't miss it.

this next thing I would try is to delete the driver for your Disc Drive and then restart your computer. It should detect it automatically and have it running correctly.

If all else fails, go to Google. Type in the name of your Driver and search for an install that is supported on your operating system.

My Cd-Rom doesnt work for my Acer Notebook 2930


Did it give any error code, like Error code 39? And does the DVD/CD Drive appear in My Computer?

Normally the CD drives use the default Windows drivers. Try right clicking the HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA T50N ATA Device in Device Manager and choose uninstall. Then reboot the computer and Windows will find the device and re-install drivers automatically.

If you are still getting the error, it may be an update or some other program that added data to the DVD's driver data in the registry. Try this:

1) Close all open programs

2) Click on Start, Run, and type "regedit" (without the quotations) and press Enter. Back up (File > Export) the registry before you make any changes)

3) Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
  • SYSTEM
  • CurrentControlSet
  • Control
  • Class
  • Left Click and Highlight: {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} **Make sure you choose this exact key**
4) This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

  • UpperFilters
  • LowerFilters
  • UpperFilters.bak
  • LowerFilters.bak
5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed on the right hand side, right-click on them and choose Delete

6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor


7) Reboot your computer


8) Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

CD/DVD player doesn't read disc


Unless it's a hardware problem, (physically damaged, replace drive), then it sounds like a driver issue. Over time drivers (the software that runs the hardware) can be corrupted, get into a compatability conflict with new programs, or lost by the system. You obviously can't reinstall the drivers from your recovery discs, but you can (usually) download them from your manufacturer's website.

In your Start menu's search, type Device Manager. Open DM and expand the + next to DVD/CD-ROM drives.

If your drive is not listed in there, then it's not installed, download it's software from your manufacturer's website.

If your drive is listed but has a 9b861c0.gif next to it, then there's a driver problem. Double click the drive and note what it says under "Device Status" on the General tab. Go to the Driver tab and click "Update Driver..." Choose "Search automatically for updated driver software" and Windows will search both your computer and the internet for the proper drivers for your device.

Even if your drive is listed and it's status is "device is working properly" you may still need to reinstall the drivers. Often there can be a driver conflict that your computer is not aware of to report back. In any case, before replacing the drive you'll definately want to try fixing the drivers.

Hope this helps
