Samsung SATA DVD burner not working in Vista

I recently got a new Samsung SATA DVD burner (SH-203N) from for my Windows Vista Home Premium system (Asus Striker Extreme board). The drive is not detecting any discs. The wininquiry.exe file

I used from Samsungs website comes up with a drive not found error message and when looking in the device manager I see the following error message: "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)"

I have tried updating the driver and that doesn't work. I also hit the "check for solutions" button and got the following error message:

Windows was able to successfully install device driver software, but the driver software encountered a problem when it tried to run. The problem code is 39.

Files that help describe the problem:

I would greatly appreciate any help getting this drive to work. :)
