Problem with vista and dvd drive

  Dobie 10:40 24 Jun 2007

Hi guys

My laptop was shut down wrongly, and i am now unable to access the DVD drive.

I get a message saying "windows cannot load the device driver for this device, the driver may be corrupt or missing".

I have tried the update driver button, i am told the best driver is installed.

Have also tried removing the device and restarting the PC, it reloads the driver/device on start up, but i still have the same problem.

Can anyone help.

Thanks in advice
