I've got a Toshiba laptop with a Matshita CD/DVD rom drive in it. Suddenly,
the drive is not noticeable by Windows. In device manager, it's there with
the Yellow ! and says "Windows cannot load the device driver for this
hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)"

The steps I have taken are as follows:

1) I tried simply removing the drive from device manager and then doing Find
New Hardware and letting it install itself. It goes back to the same
scenario.

2) I then downloaded the updated drivers from support.toshiba.com and tried
a few different methods of installing. They want you to simply run the
self-executing zip file...so I tried that to no availe. Then, I tried
extracting the zip and manually installing the drivers by pointing to the
folder. Same thing happens.

3) I called toshiba support...who of course walked me right back through the
steps I had already taken (and took a small lesson from me on the fact that I
can extract zip files and run them manually instead of running the
self-executable...he just couldn't understand that.) Anyway, we tried both
the updated driver and also the original driver. Both do the same exact
thing. To end my call with them he told me I should take it to a local
repair center.

The problem is I know what they'll do...First they'll download the drivers
and install and that won't work. Then, they'll wanna do a restore on the
laptop...which I'm really trying to avoid. If that has to be done I'd do a
clean install myself cuz I hate manufacturer restore discs anyway.

Anyway, what tips are there for troubleshooting this problem without having
to do a clean install? It says the driver cannot load...how can I figure out
why? And why does removing it and re-installing not fix the problem?

Any information I can get on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

To resolve this issue, follow these steps:

1. Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
[Start > Run and type: REGEDIT , and hit enter]

2. Locate the UpperFilters value under the following key in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

3. On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.

4. Locate the LowerFilters value under the same key in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

5. On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.

6. Quit Registry Editor.NOTE: After you remove the Upperfilters value and the Lowerfilters value,
if you notice lost functionality in a particular program, such as CD recording software, you may need
to reinstall that software. If the problem recurs, consult with the software vendor for assistance.

7. Restart your computer.
