My Driver isnt working since when i REstarted my whole computer, but it saved all my documents, But when i try to run a cd or dvd it wont read, so i went to troubleshoot, and told me to to uninstal then install again and i did so but it still doesnt work, i went to check it out on my C: files in the hardware tab section but it says

Windows status: Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupt or missing. [code 39]

It says that for my SONY CD-RW CRX215E5 and IDE-DVD ROM 16x

I think you might be getting the term restarted and reformated confused... Restarted is when you turn the computer off and then turn it back on within seconds. To reformat means to wipe the drive of all information. Now, just so I can clarify, which of these did you do?

Hi ^_^...

Let's take a look at the upper and lower filters for this problem. Click Start then Run and type regedit...click "Ok"

In the left pane, expand (click +) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then SYSTEM, then CurrentControlSet, then Control, then Class, and click on {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} In the right pane, are UpperFilters and/or LowerFilters listed?

Right click on LowerFilters and choose "Delete"...accept the change. Close Registry Editor and reboot.

Try the drives...any change?
