This problem originally started as DVDs not playing properly they work but played jerky even if the dvd was brand new. That was a year or two ago, however this year after learning that it could not burn my videos on dvds or the sound would come out wrong I stuck to just burning cds.
Till one day the problem got worse: I stuck a dvd I had burned some information to check and see if it had burned (on another laptop) alright. But nothing came up so I went to the explorer to browse the dvd and the icon for the dvd wasnt even there. Then I tried popping the dvd out and the drive wouldnt eject so I had to get a pin and open it. After I had closed it and rebooted the drive showed back up in explorer. However when I tried using a cd a few days later the icon disappeared again, although I was able to eject the cd without using a pin.
The icon still wont show up, but I checked in device manager the it gave a code 39 error for the dvd rom drivers it said: Windows can not load the device drivers they may have been corrupted or are missing. So I clicked on update the drivers but it said there wasnt anything better then the ones I had, so then I tried rolling them back and it said there was none to restore.
So what can I do to fix this problem? :/
