I have lost or corrupted my laptop driver for the cd/dvd. I may have lost it when I uninstalled RealPlayer. Can anyone confirm this and suggest a remedy. The lost driver is for a Mat*[email protected]:a uj840d and seems to be a microsoft driver.I uninstalled the device but after restart the dvd/cd was found but could not find the driver. If I update the driver I am told that the driver is best that is available.

DVD/CDs do not need drivers. So what driver could it not find?

If I put a cd (music) in the drive it spins up but does not play. I have a yellow exclamation sign on the device in SYSTEM DEVICES

Then you need to do a re-install and use you windows disk for the drivers

Sorry forgot you were on a laptop and if your cd will not work you cannot use the disk, try downloading drivers from the net
