A computer problem - Help!!

Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)

That's what I am getting for both my DVD drive and my DVD R/W drive.
I have tried it on both motherboard connections, and with a different ribbon cable.

Both drives have power.  Both will spin up a disc.  The computer cannot see the hardware.

It has been ok until tonight.


I found the answer - it involved a registry edit, but I have my drives back.
The registry. Yeah. I remember what that is. It's been a while.

Hello!! How do you do? I'm Underwolf. Japanese.

When I cannot install the driver, I search it in Internet. Please input to your type turn of DVD and search it. Perhaps, I think it can download that driver.

Greetings Underwolf. It's very nice to meet you.

I was able to solve this probm, but it took some research.
The drivers were OK, but the machine could not see the hardware.

I had to delete a couple of registry entries to fix it.
