    Default CD and DVD drive won't read

    "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. [code 39]"

    That's what it says in the device manager about the CD and DVD drives. It's an ASUS CRW-4832AS CD drive and a philips DVD drive. Any idea where I can download another driver or redownload the one that's already there? The driver version is 5.1.2535.0 7/1/2001.

    Try uninstalling the drives from device manager. Reboot your computer, and let Windows redetect them

    You did jumper one to Master, and the other to Slave, if theyre on the same IDE connection didnt you?

    Yup. Actually, the IDE connector I think was bad, because it wasn't even recognizing them in the BIOS until I stuck another one in.

    Hmm are u sure u connected the IDE cable the right way??

    With the stripe (on one side), going to pin 1 on both the DVD and the CD?

    And if the IDE connector is blue the blue end is connected to the mobo?

    Does it really matter whether using 80 or 40 wires IDE cable?

    All of the cables are connected. They're showing up in the BIOS and in the device manager, but in the device manager, it says the driver is missing or corrupt. Also, I get an Enumerate Device Win32_CDROMDrive Fail !! error once windows has booted and I'm at the desktop.

    Actually it does.

    80 wire is better, quite a few burners (and hdd's), if its 40 wire it'll only go to DMA 2, the 80 wire will take it to DMA 4/5.

    Thanks. It worked. They finally work...I've been without them for a few days.
