Apologies for originally posting this in another thread..
I have a similar problem, I uninstalled some unwanted programs earlier and on reboot my E drive was missing from my list of drives in my computer. I right clicked on the computer manager to check for problems and my CD/DVD has a little warning icon next to it with the following message.
Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)... I use windows vista home premium on an Acer Aspire lap top and the name of the CD/DVD device is MATbleepA DVD-RAM UJ-850S ATA Device.
I did some checking on the net and it seems the problem is caused by two corrupted registry entries, unfortunately I am not computer literate enough to be able to fix the problem without help, so, if anyone can help or at least point me towards help I will be thankful.
