DVD-CD Rom no longer shows as part of my computer!

This question has suggested answer(s)

I have a Dell Inspiron 530S with Vista OS.  For some time the my CD ROM would not auto start, but I could open the files of a CD and activate the CD.  Yesterday, I tried to enter a new CD program and the CD RIOM was dead and did not even show on the list of drives when I went to the computer location that shows everything. 

Device manager says "Windows cannot load the device driver.  Driver may be corrupted or missing (Code 39)."  Microsoft says I have the latest driver for the device!

What now?
