Windows cannot start this hardware device because its
configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete
or damaged. (Code 19). This is the error msg I get and my
DVD drive can not be used. Can someone tell me how to
repair this problem? Please, thank you, EL

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
