For a few weeks now I have been puzzling over why my CDRW/DVD ROM driver refuses to load under Windows Vista. I naively assumed that I needed to find a replacement driver from the manufacturer (IBM in my case), or perhaps my drive was bad.
After replacing my laptop docking station and the drive unit , I could still not mount the drive, and the device manager gave me the following error:
Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)
As a last ditch effort I Google'd the error and came across the following KB article:
This solved my issue. [:)]
