You don't need to get a codec for your DVD drive but for your operating system. You can get the latest one here
. Just click the Download [ K-Lite Codec Pack 6.9.0 Full ] It comes with Windows Media Player Classic and a host of decoders needed to play any video or audio file.
Another great application I found on the net is called VLC Media Player, it can literally play ANY
media file, especially HD videos
that Media Player Classic can't handle, and the best thing is that it is totally 100% FREE
, it can be found here

If you are runny windows 7, this will most likely not work due to compatibility issues. If you are running XP this problem will not occur. The only solution to use this drive would be downgrade to a different operating system or a different computer. If this is not an option. Get a new drive.

Download and install CCleaner
(free) from Piriform
Run the cleaner to remove old
un-needed temp files
Select the StartUp tab and look
for any programs that you know you installed but no longer use or
need, and disable them. Caution, do
not disable any system files unless you absolutely know what they
do and that you do not need them.
Run the Registry cleaner, when
asked if you want to backup the registry, select YES,
and save to a file you will remember just in case. I have used this
program hundreds of time on many different system and it has never
caused a problem, but you want to be safe, backup the Registry.
If asked about a particular file
that it wants to clean, select "yes to all"
Windows should reinstall the drive when
the computer boots back up.
If this does not resolve your problem,
try the following.
If you take all these step and you
still can not burn a DVD, chances are your DVD burner componet needs
to be replaced. Good Luck.

Right click on the My Computer icon on your desktop.Select Manage,then when it opens,select Disk Management at the bottom.That will open with a list of all drives installed in your machine.See if your CD has a drive letter assigned to it.If not,right click on the CD and select Change letters and path. Select change and pick a letter for the drive.Save,apply, or ok that.Sorry,don't remember what the command is in XP.
Good or bad,please rate my post.

I see this is a month old,but I'll answer this for anyone doing a future search that may come across this thread.
The link is to Microsoft's on-line repair center.This will fix several error codes,including 41,and is probably the first thing to try when your optical drive is installed but Windows can't find it.
If this helps with your problem,and anyone in the future,would you rate my post please?
