Help ! my dvd driver has disappeared

hello helpful people,

i have a huge problem. the driver for my dvd drive has disappeared overnight… i have a sony vaio laptop with a matshita-uj832d cd-rom/dvd drive, and windows gives me the “Code 39” message, i.e. driver corrupted or disappeared.

can anyone tell me how i get a replacement driver? i have tried google, but only got a russian article.

thanks for any help !

Try going into control panel, and uninstall the drive, and the ide, then reboot and let windows autodetect the drivers.

thanks, i will try that !
regards
