Hi guys,

Today i decided to delete files i didn't need and for some reason i deleted a folder called SonyUSB which i thought was for my old digital camera but it turns out it was for my CD rom and DVD rom or some crap..I dont fully understand. I goto control panel > system > device manager and my cdrom/cdrw and dvd have yellow exclamation marks...This is what it says under status of the deivce for both "Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)"

i got no idea what to do, i tried to get some software to recover that folder SonyUSB that i deleted but no good.. I uninstalled the dvd and cd roms so maybe my pc would restore them and they would be ok, no good...


Please someone help me, i'll be grateful

Regards,

Zeeb

this is a shot in the dark. are you sure that your drives have actually become uninstalled? it sounds like a conflict somewhere.

evidently i take it that you have a sony usb digital camera somewhere. have you tried reinstalling its driver and seeing what happens? could be that these devices are using a similar driver. what make are your cd/dvd rom drives.

heres what i think you have to do to reinstate your devices.

totally uninstall the drivers that device manager claims to have found for these devices.
delete the devices from device manager.
restart you computer and let windows redetect your drives
reload the specific drivers for your drives. these may come on a cd or a floppy disk.
check device manager for listings of your device and any conflicts.

you can thank me.... i did it for you

see below

Code 41

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



Recommended resolution

A driver was loaded but Windows cannot find the device. This error occurs when Windows does not detect a non-Plug and Play device.

If the device was removed, uninstall the driver, install the device, and then click Scan for hardware changes to reinstall the driver. If the hardware was not removed, obtain a new or updated driver for the device.

If the device is a non-Plug and Play device, a newer version of the driver might be needed. To install non-Plug and Play devices, use the Add Hardware wizard. Click Performance and Maintenance on Control Panel, click System, and on the Hardware tab, click Add Hardware Wizard.

On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard.

hope this helps...:D

Daz, you have an existing topic in the Windows XP section for this specific problem. It's better placed there so please don't cross-post the same problem in different forum sections. This particular topic is in itself mis-placed.

i will most certainly try to help you. :D

Firstly not knowing my region codes etc i am not sure if you are still operating a PAL region code in oz or the other 1. it shouldnt make a difference anyway unless you only have a region 2 DVD player. by the sounds of it this may well be the case. is it only doing this on DVDs purchased in oz or both DVDs purchased there and in the uk. Also the software could be an issue. You might be lucky and be able to access the software setup. if you can ensure its on multi region.:D

I personally use programs like NERO and ROXIO for dvd playback.

It might also be worth trying to clean the laser as sometimes dirt on the laser can cause sound and playback problems.

also have a look in device manager just to make sure there are not any conflicting devices anywhere.
