Lite-on SOWH-812s

[qanda]This thread is about the Lite-On SOHW-812S. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I have a desktop PC with a lite-on SOWH 812s DVDRW and a Pioneer DVD-ROM 106. Both were working fine till last week and now windows will not recognise either device, or that a disk has been inserted. When I check the hardware “properties” i am told "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing (error 39)

I have tried un/re-installing the hardware and a system restore but to no avail.

Any ideas my friends??

Use google and look for error 39. It will tell you how to delete the upper and lower filters.
