DVD/CD-ROM drives with a yellow shreik/exclamation mark in Device Mana

I have two DVD drives connected to an XP desktop computer, however, they do not work.

They appear in Device Manager under DVD/CD-ROM drives with a yellow shreik/exclamation mark preceding the listing.

The devices are also recognized in the BIOS setup.

When I click on the device in Device Manager, I get the message"Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)".

One of the devices previously worked correctly. In fact, I completed a clean install of XP using it.

Just what does the error message mean? Does it mean that the devices are faulty & need to be replaced?

What is the solution to this problem?

  1. How are they hooked up?
    Are they on the same IDE cable and if so is one set to master and one to slave?
