CD & DVD drives lost

Neither of my CD and DVD drives are working. Device manager shows an
exclamation for them. Properties gives the following message:

Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot
find the hardware device. (Code 41)

I uninstalled both drivers and did a cold start. The computer found both
drives again, but still has the same result. I've checked the connections -
data and power for both. I've got a HP Pavilion 7965 with XP Home SP 1& 2.

Any suggestions?

Terry

Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot
find the hardware device. (Code 41)

[[A driver was loaded but Windows cannot find the device. This happens when
Windows does not detect a non-Plug and Play device.

If the device was removed, uninstall the driver, install the device, and
then click Scan for hardware changes to reinstall the driver. If the
hardware was not removed, obtain a new or updated driver for the device.

If the device is a non-Plug and Play device, a newer version of the driver
might be needed. To install non-Plug and Play devices, use the Add Hardware
wizard. Click Performance and Maintenance on Control Panel, click System,
and on the Hardware tab, click Add Hardware Wizard.

On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the
troubleshooting wizard.]]

I had to contact HP to fix the problem. The solution involved modifying the
register. Thanks for your help.
