ok well this is kinda imbarising and kinda stupid and i do not fully understand what happened but here we go.i bought a new toshiba laptop. (me = happy) but i was delleting all the crap that came on the desktop like norton trial and all that crap. so click del, click del, click del. and i was done. i thought i would celabrate my victory by watching a movie.(ghost in the shell) i poped it in my dvd drive and to my disapointment. nothing. it was working i installed some games and stuff. i tryed some other disks but nothing. it was dead!... so i went in to the divice manager and saw that there was a problem with it. "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)" i thought that all i had to do was get a driver for it. and i still think that. but i looked and looked but i never was good at finding drivers. that might not even be the problem i just read that and asumed that my new found friend the laptop would not lie to me. so here is some info on the dvd rw.
device status = Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)
name = pioneer dvd-rw dvrkd08a ata device
driver provider = microsoft
if more info is needed then please let me know. and please help me fix him.
