Hi

Suddenly I cant get windows to read my CD/DVD player
It's a "TSSTcorp CD/DVDW SH-W162C" under WindowsXP Pro (all latest
patches).
Under Control Panel ==> Device Manager it comes up with a yellow "!"
icon on the CD graphic.
I have tried right clicking on it and uninstalling it, with the hope
the windows will find it again when
I reboot, but that doesnt work.
I tried running Control Panel ==> Add hardware, but it still comes up
with an error message.

When I go into Device Manager and right click to see the properties of
the device, I get:

   > Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware.
   > The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

- Any suggestions greatfully received...

Thanks. I have no idea if that would have worked.
After several rounds of uninstalling and reinstalling using plug and
play, and also trying
to download special drivers I  finally found a special utility that
you have to download
from microsoft (sorry I forget what it was called) that seemed to fix
the problem.  [sigh]

Strangely my laptop had the exact same problem on a completely
different CD/DVD
driver - so something installed in both of them must have called the
original problemo.
(I just hope that that thing aint a nothing sinister!)
