Re: CD Drive Code 39 Error - NO FIX!

Big Props to you tata!! My DVD drive disapeared overnight and of course in checking Device Manager, I had Code 39.  Couldn't get it fixed at all until I stumbled onto the site  and your link to MS. Fixed it up good as new. Thanks again for the link

Re: CD Drive Code 39 Error - NO FIX!

Thank you so much for the Sony BMG Uninstaller fix.  I have been trying to fix my daughter's DVD-ROM drive for hours on end trying all of the things suggested here to no avail.  I knew that the drive wasn't dead because I swapped another one in and got the same error messages.  Once I ran the Sony uninstaller, the drive was instantly recognized by Windows upon reboot and works like a charm.  Ironically, I knew for years that the Sony rootkit was on my daughter's computer and intended to download and run the uninstaller but we never got around to it and there didn't appear to be any problems with her machine.  I had no idea that it could bring the DVD drive to a complete halt.  It seems that many people with this error code are having success with the standard fix from the Windows Support page, but if that doesn't work, make sure to follow step 1 above--that was definitely the issue for me.

Thanks again.
