    Hello, please can you help,

    My Laptop's DVD drive isn't showing up in My Computer. And I cant understand why. Quite a new laptop from PC world. XP installed. all windows updates. Nothing much on it.

    It says this when I go to device manager and it has a little yellow icon on the DVD drive "The device is found and installed but not connected code 41".

    So I really dont get this. Any help given is appretiated.

    First , the obvious question, have you removed and re-inserted the CD drive?

    If you can try that, remove the drivers entirely and see if Windows automatically re-installs them for you?
