Difficulties with LiteOn DVD-RW Model SHW-160P6S

The device will not show up in the My Computer with the other drives and the printer and such, in addition, when the properties are viewd under the Device Manager, it shows [Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)] That error, I’m quite at a loss for what to do, I have already uninstalled and tried readding the device several times, any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you for taking the time to read.

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

I don’t know if it can solve, but can you try to use a new IDE cable?

To exclude a damaged drive, can you try to install it on a different computer? If on a different machine the drive is working, then there is something wrong in your computer.

Welcome to CD Freaks, Andrew. :flower:

Can you read through and try the information given on the following link: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060 ? It might help.

^ Yep, that should work - there’s a Guided Help on the page too if you’re wary about editing the Registry.

Welcome to the forum and good luck! :slight_smile:

I’d be interested in knowing if this got resolved. :cool:
