Dell Latitude d505 CD/DVD drive

This has just refused to work.
Error message says "W succesfully loaded device driver but cannot find hardware device" Code 41
Like all computer messages, that is illogical as message details description of device.
Help please

Many thanks for help.

The fix it worked.

1 thread linked to RegCure which i inadvertently downloaded last year and it cost me £30. It did not solve the prob at that time so beware.
