My CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive does not work. It used to burn DVD's and CD's now it only plays CD's.

Can someone please help me?

this is the message I have under the Device Manager: "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)

To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Driver".

Hi Camacho5 :D

To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Driver".

Have you done this and if so what happened?
It is possible by the way for a part of the drive to fail, in this case the "Write" part.

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 http://aumha.org/regfiles.php#misc
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.

Thanks to Broni for the above instructions

Code 28
The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)
Recommended resolution

Install the driver

You may be prompted to provide the path of the driver. Windows may have the driver built-in. If you are asked for the driver and you do not have it, you can try to download the latest driver from the hardware vendor’s Web site.

In the device Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab, and then click Update Driver to start the Hardware Update Wizard. Follow the instructions to install the driver.
