My computer does not show drive E: in the My computer folder :tazz: . I fugured it was missing the driver so I went to Add Hardware and ASUS CRW-4832AS was at the top with an explanation point. I clicked next and got this message.

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

Does anybody know how I can get this entire problem fixed?

-Thanks ;)

EDIT: I used the XP_CD-DVD-Fix.zip from http://www.dougknox.com/
I logged on as admininstrator from safemode, extracted the file and opened it. The confromation said it was finished.

It did not work

Google the exact name of your hardware with instructions to find drivers and try reinstalling that way. I have a samsung DVD-Rom and had the same thing happen. Hopefully this will work for you.

Did you go into the Device Manager and find a yellow exclamation point next to your drive? If so, go into the registry and delete the upperfilters and lowerfilters for that drive. It worked for me.

How do you find it in the Registry?

I'm helping a friend troubleshoot, and have problems with both the Samsung DVD drive and the ASUS 4832 drive (and BOTH of them have disappeared)!

thanks,

Peter
