DVD Burner won't install drive

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.

    Turn your computer off, and unplug the AC power.

    Open up your computer, and unplug the "data" and "power" cables from the DVD-drive, and then reconnect them. Check that the "other" end of the "data" cable is firmly attached to the motherboard.

    Reconnect the power, and restart the computer.
    Press DEL to enter BIOS-setup mode.
    Is the DVD-drive still not detected?

    If it is not detected, it probably is electronically "dead", and needs to be replaced.

    DVDRW doesn't show Drive in My Explorer.

    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/

    Installing it


    may i ask how you installed your dvd burner? is it primary or secondary?

    may i suggest that you install your burner as a primary on your ide cable and also, if possible, update your media player so that you can be sure that it will be detected.

    you may not need an installation disk for that. because once it will be detected, it would be smooth sailing from there.

    hope this helps you.

    Cd/dvd burner

    Check the volume controll on the player you are using. Players like Power DVD etc have volume controlls and mute buttons the mute might be active or the volume is down.
