Question about Sony VAIO VGN-SZ440 Notebook

1 Answer

This device cannot start. (Code 10) could not load driver software

I have Toshiba Satellite A100-049 Model PSAARE-03G00JEN

My cd-rom drive suddenly stopped working and the icon has disappeared from my computer. I checked device manager and it has yellow exclamation mark on it. The device model is HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GMA-4082N ATA Device

I have disabled, enabled but no luck. I took it back to John Lewis today and they unistalled the device but my computer cannot reinstall the driver. They told me to search Toshiba support and downlaod the driver as they think it is corrupt and will be fixed by downloading driver.
I have just spent 2 hours trying tolocate the driver but no luck and am fed up.
Please can anyone sort this out for me and tell me how to get my cd drive working again.
Many thanks Windows was able to successfully install device driver software for my MATSHITA DVD ROM UH-850S ATA Device, but the driver software encountered a problem when it tried to run. The problem code is 10.

Toshiba DVD ROM SD M1302 driver


If you are using Windows 98, 98SE, ME, 2000, NT or XP, and have an ATAPI/IDE CD/DVD drive, there is no driver needed (see Toshiba statement I have posted below). Under no circumstances, if DVD is properly installed and functional, will you need ANY driver!

If your DVD drive is a SCSI drive, then it may need drivers specific to the SCSI card you have installed (see the specs/manual or website for your card). You may also need the Adaptec SCSI setup, available at this address:

http://www.adaptec.com/worldwide/support/suppbyproduct.jsp?sess=no&language=English+US&cat=%2FTechnology%2FSCSI+Software&fromPage=driverindex

or use this address if you have a LOGIC based SCSI card or device:

http://www.lsilogic.com/

Now, if you meet the criteria for the first paragraph I wrote, and your PC does not load the driver automatically (after a reboot or two) then you have a PHYSICAL or HARDWARE problem. Either the DVD drive is improperly cabled, improperly installed or defective.

Those are all your options. See below, from Toshiba website
good luck

Hi, the error code that you have on the CD/DVD drive is a known issue from Microsoft. The error code means "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (code 39)".
Since you are using a Toshiba laptop; you can click on this link http://tinyurl.com/toshibadvd and click on the repair tool on the resolution. This is applicable on both Windows Xp and Vista and will delete the upper/lowerfilters on the registry.

In case that the error code still exist you need to manually delete the upper/lowerfilters under the registry by clicking on this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929461/en-us . You need to go the "Run" screen then type in "regedit" and click OK or hit the enter key.

This will surely fix the error code that you have on the CD/DVD drive.

Thanks
