My "D" CD/DVD drive does not appear in the My Computer screen; however, it does appear in device manager. When I click the "plus" sign to drop down the menu in the Device Manager under DVD/CD ROM Drives, it shows my disk drive with a big yellow exclamation point.

Furthermore, when I right click and click properties it says in the Device Status, Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device. (yes I have hit troubleshoot)

Please help me with my problem.
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

US (German-born) physicist (1879 - 1955)

I support this theory and all others from Einstein (even his theory on a static universe)
Not really!

Try uninstalling it, turn your computer on/off, reinstall it and see if it corrects itself, if not your dive may be bad.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
