My cd rom is unable to read cds and there is error in cd-rom driver....


If the Cd rom driver has an error, you can check and know if it has an error. Click on start, Control Panel, System, for windows xp, click on Hardware and then device manager, try and look to identify if your cd rom driver has a question mark on it or a yellow mark, if so, this means that the driver is corrupted, you need to uninstall it, right click on it and choose uninstall, after restart your computer.
for windows 7 and vista click on start, control panel, system and device manager, do the rest as explained earlier.

My cd rom doesn't work, it comes up with code 39, curropt or missing dvd/cd-rom drive tsst corp cddvdw-ts-l632h-ata. am soulangel


If the drive is showing an error (or is missing) in device manager, do the following:

Start Registry Editor (Start, Run and type in regedit then click O.K)
Locate the UpperFilters value under the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.
Locate the LowerFilters value under the same key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.
Quit Registry Editor.


Hope this helps

Drive not showing in WinXP (error code 39)Liteon Combo SOHC-5236v


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:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Delete any of the following registry entries under this key directory:
LowerFilters
LowerFilters.bak
UpperFilters
UpperFilters.bak
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.

System errors are not welcome guests that bring up unhappy computing experience. Registry Easy (www.registryeasy.com) is a professional troubleshooting system maintenance tool that can help you to solve this error and many more.

CD-ROM icon missing on screen


Hedge,

Can you see it in your device manager? if you can't then its a physical problem which means you will need to double check your physical connections between the cdrom and your motherboard as well as the power connections.
Another way to double check is go to your bios and see if the biois detects your cdrom. If it doesnt then i think you cdrom is dead.

smeags.

Missing "imagehlp.dll" error on installation


Uninstalling other makers software may remove a system file which prevents installation of Coolpix drivers from the Nikon View v5.1 CD on Windows 98SE systems. It has been reported that, when connecting a Coolpix camera to a Windows 98SE machine, the hardware wizard will not recognize the appropriate driver; this setup fails because the file "IMAGEHLP.DLL" is missing from the system. Installation will stop with an error message which mentions this file. This problem may be caused by the earlier removal of another makers software from the operating system. To solve the problem, first disconnect the camera then follow these instructions to copy the appropriate file from the Win98SE CD back to the correct directory on your computer: Place the Win98SE CDROM in the CD-ROM drive. From the Start Menu select Run, type in SFC.EXE. Select "Extract a single file". Type in IMAGEHLP.DLL to the field provided. Click start. When the next dialogue box appears click "skip". This dialog box appears: Where e:\WIN98\ should be the Win98SE CD-ROM (your CD-ROM drive may use another letter other than "e"). Copy the file to the same destination shown and a screen will appear showing that "File has been successfully extracted". Next, remove the Win98SE CD-ROM from the CD-ROM drive and replace the Nikon View 5 CD in the CD-ROM drive. Reconnect the camera. The hardware wizard should automatically detect the camera and install the driver from the Nikon View 5 CD.
