hi, as the title of the thread suggests, both my dvd-drives have vanished from My Computer.
this has happened to me before but usually i just go to registry and delete upperfilters and lowerfilters, this time however that doesn't help.
when i go to device manager, the drives don't appear under "DVD/CD-ROM Drives" and when i go to the controller (IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers --> Primary IDE Channel) the icon has a little yellow exclamation mark on it and when i go to properties it says "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)"
any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks
EDIT: btw, this happened right after i installed a new hard drive (and took the old one out).... maybe that has something to do with it?
