I'm running Windows XP serevice pack 2. When I place a cd into my drive
nothing happens. So I went to the Device Manager and it said that "Windows
cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted
or missing. (Code 39)". I have a SAMSUNG CDRW/DVD SM-308B drive. How can I
fix this? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

"CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive appears to be missing after you install
Windows XP"

For an automated fix (rather than manually editing the Registry),

Address scrambled. Replace nkbob with bobkn.

See if this article applies to you, since you mention Code 39:
