I'm in need of some help if anyone can lend it to me.
My CD driver has inexplicably stopped working; it's been going on for about two weeks now but until recently I thought it was just my CD burner. Turns out that when I click My Computer, it doesn't even display the D Drive anymore! I did some clicking around and got the warning message that the driver is missing or corrupt (Error 39) or something like that.
Here is what I've tried so far to fix the problem:
First, my friend came over and opened my tower for me. He disconnected the drive and reconnected it, thinking that maybe it might have come loose if I had bumped it or something. That didn't work.
Next, I uninstalled it through the device manager and then rebooted, and reinstalled it when it was detected as new hardware. This didn't fix the problem either.
The last thing I tried was a system restore to roughly a month ago; the only thing this accomplished was to inadvertantly rid me of the Virusburst trojan. Hahahaha...
So seeing as I'm about to be releasing an album (self-produced, therefore self-burned...) this is a pretty frustrating problem. I was wondering if there's anywhere I can get the driver from? I don't have the discs, they didn't come with the computer. If need be I guess I could pay to get it fixed; I really want to avoid that though because, pre-release, I don't have a lot of money. Hahaha.
