Hi all,

I am using windows xp pro sp2 on my DELL Latitude D505 laptop and i have recently cleaned it up ( removed loads of unwanted software, made a few changes in MSconfig etc) and i have only just noticed that my CD/DVD drive is not appearing in the control panel!

In device manager i get the following:

windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware (code 39)

any suggestions please??

thank you
