I have a problem similar to the one found at this thread: http://www.geekstogo...5263-not-found/

I have a Dell Inspiron 700m. My Philips drive doesn't show up in My Computer, but it shows up when i click on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the lower right of my screen. I tried uninstalling it thru my Device Manager. When I reboot, the yellow exclamation point is still there. Device Status says, "Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)"

Can someone help me?

One of these may help:
1. Uninstall the drive through Device Manager.
Restart computer. The drive will be automatically reinstalled.
or...
2. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060
Restart computer.
or...
3. Download, and run Restore Missing CD Drive patch
Double click on cdgone.zip to unzip it.
Right click on cdgone.reg, click Merge.
Accept registry merge.
Restart computer.
or...
4. Go to Device Manager, click a "+" sign next to IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers.
You'll see two items:
- ATA Channel0 (or Primary Channel)
- ATA Channel1 (or Secondary Channel)
Right click on each of them, and click Uninstall. Confirm.
Restart Windows. They'll be automatically reinstalled.

Thank's to Broni for the instructions
