I just bought a Philips 20x DVD±RW Drive Burner and installed it but it won't do anything. I have an error which says Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39). Does anyone have a driver or know where I can get one for this burner. Thanks.

there is not much you can do about these when the just go dead, there very cheap to get I would say a better drive would cost you about $50 bucks at www.tigerdirect.com. you can try the cleaning kit for kicks but do not hate me if that did not work. Please be considerate and rate my soluton with the thumbs above there. Also please take into count that this solution was FREE did nto cost you a dime. Also leave some feedback if you will, Thanks
Should be IDE cable...IDE interface according to the specs. You computer has IDE connections so the drive should work.

You may have a virtual drive installed on your PC. (ex: Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120%, etc). If this is the case, make sure they are not set to automatically "mount" or start-up with windows. I had this same problem just today... fixed it by removing the auto-start feature and reinstalling the .CD/DVD burner/
