No access to the DVD drive - 38 error code

Update Driver published 07/07/08 to 23:59 has been installed on my system as made by Toshiba Tempo but rebooting my machine, I get error 38 (according to Vista) that prevents the new driver installation as the old pilot is resident in memory... ?? Effectively, this means that I can't access or see my DVD player more in other ways than in the page Manager devices Control Panel. Option driver restore is not available, perhaps because it was an update of the firmware. The message on the device properties page is as follows:

Windows cannot load the driver for this hardware device because a previous instance of the device driver is still in memory. (Code 38)

The installed updatre was frmwre-20080707134447. It includes an Adobe document that tells you what to do and how to ensure that your drive needs to be refreshed, which was easy to follow and loose my machine.

I tried to uninstall the device and the driver, but whenever I have to reload the same error occurs.

I'm really impressed and quite embarrassed, because it is a recommended Toshiba firmware update done using their system of Tempo, ideas or advice welcome.

Thank you

Matt

Hello

Do you see a CD/DVD drive in Device Manager?
If so, then remove it from the list of devices.

Then access the registry and delete the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters completely from the following registry key values:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Finally restart the laptop and check if the CD/DVD drive would still be functions

  • Windows 7 will not recognize the dvd drive

    Windows 7 will not recognize the dvd drive, although it worked well for more than two years.  Now I can't access it to install new software.

    It will not be displayed in the Device Manager, bad shooters to say it is not connected or is, tried Fixit fix (could not as "not applicable to your computer update"), uninstall iTunes (in the case of a conflict - even if it worked with the DVD of > 1 year), etc., but still cannot access the DVD.

    It's obviously a known issue, given that a support page - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/976187 that recommends the fix or manually disable ALPM active power management.  If it of a known issue, why is not included in the updates and that I have to disable ALPM power if management it worked ok before?

    What now? Is turn off the power, my only option?  What happens if it is not yet recognized after that?

    Another possibility is that the cables are loose. Remove ALL power, then make sure that the cables in both

    Some DVD players do not use the Windows default drivers so check with the manufacturer of system and
    manufacturer of device to see if there is a firmware or drivers for your drive if necessary.

    ===============================

    Step 2: You have disc problems as the CD/DVD is actually 4 discs in 1 case (CD & DVD

  • replace the dvd drive pavillion 1157

    The DVD in my HP Pavilion p7 player - 1157c is having a problem reading the CD/DVD, once they are placed in the drawer.  That's what I've done so far:

    • I reinstalled the cables although they were not cowards.
    • Uninstalled the DVD driver and restarted the computer and Windows 7 64 b reinstalled the driver.

    The drawer will always open and close and makes normal sounds when you first insert a CD, but it stops after a few seconds.

    After that these things did not work, I decided to buy a replacement for the CD/DVD drive last night and went to install it this morning but it seems that the power supply works in the way and I can't get the DVD player.   Y at - it something for the old DVD out without removing the power supply?   I'm usually not mechanically challenged but this has me confused.
