Hello... today i went to go play battlefield 2 so i put in the cd and it didn't recognize it... so i went into my computer and my drives weren't there...

i had also recently removed Daemon tools witch i used to for virtual drives and i guess it deleted them all...

so i checked hardware profiles and my drives all had questionmarks next to them so i went a found my box that the dvd drive came in

it said pacific digital so i went to http://www.pacificdigital.com

went to drivers and then dvd drives then there were a bunch of them and they didn't work... so how do i get the drivers for them i also lost the cd that the drive came with... i don't even think it has drivers on the cd anyways.

it says on the box Pacific Digital 16X Dvd-rom and 48x cd-rom

internal IDE interface


Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Most probably it got any clash with cd driver or you had that missing for any other reason.

Just delete(back up before proceeding) the LowerFilters and UpperFilters from
KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/System/CurrentControlSet/Control/Class/{4d36e965-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}

You won't loose anything more. CD/DVD(for any error) if be missing due to damaged drivers get wrong values in these two entries. So just delete and reboot normally and if not everything be back nothing will be lost as Windows will automatically detect those again(and properly).

If you get no improve open device manager and tell us the error code. Most probably that will be due to missing or corrupted driver. Uninstall CD drive from device manager and reboot normally.

Thanks.

Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)
