Installed new cd rom still doesn't work. In device manager its says for both
cd rom devices ( Windows cannot load the device driver for this
hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)Tried to uninstall
and reinstall no luck. I may have deleted something important in either
Nortons Spybot or spyware. I deleted a bunch of problems detected by one of
those and then read it might not be a good idea because it could effect other
prop in your PC. Help PLEASE Can this be fixed or not Thanks in advance

Found this in a different post:

Goto http://aumha.org/win5/a/xpcd.php#problems
See the second "problem" (read the caveats)
Run the provided registry patch

That should fix your problem (basically, a filter driver is missing or
non-operational, the registry patch will delete the filter drivers
references for your cdrom(s))


Basically, the reg file from above carries out the steps displayed at this
website

CD-ROM Access Is Missing and Messages Cite Error Code 31, Code 32, Code 19,
or Code 39 After You Remove Easy CD Creator in Windows XP

(It'll fix code 41 errors too as per the contents of the last kb article)
