Lg Dvdrw Not Working After Inst. Alcohol 120%

running Vista, everything sweet untill i installed Alcohol 120, I got blue screen, and it continued to blue screen every boot until i booted from last known good config.

I immediately uninstalled and deleted Alcohol 120.

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

Uninstalled driver & rebooted, still same message [with yellow ! mark on its listing in device manager]

isatap.domain also has ! mark on its listing in device manager.

No dvd movie or game will be read, it simply says please insert media, lights up like normal but nothing registers.


Did you try uninstalling the primary and secondary IDE’s and rebooting?

were do i find them,

how do i do that?

appologies if its a stupid question.

Open Control Panel/System/Device Manager and you will find the listings for the IDE channels and CD/DVD drives.

You might have to install Alcohol again & the un-install. Sometimes it apparently doesn’t un-install correctly leaving problems behind it.

That’s what another member had to do a few months ago.

It’s a shame this is with Vista, not XP - deleting the upper and lower filters would have fixed the problem had the OP been using XP.

Doing that under Vista has some…undesirable side effects, so I’ve heard :doh:, so maybe Tim’s advice will work instead :slight_smile:

Its also a shame that the OP is using an illegal version of Alcohol downloaded from LimeWire.
