Hey looking at a computer of a mates. Fixed the big problem it had easily now a weird problem went into my computer and there is no disk drive, so I look at the front of the pc, yes there is a disk drive and it does open. Looked at data cable pushed in properly on both ends. So finally check Device manager and it has the disk drive with the question mark next to it. The drive is a Lite-on DVDRW SHW-160P6S. Been trying everything to try and get it to work. Computer is running XP Home sp2.

Whats the error code when you double click on the dvd in device manager?

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