TSSTcorp CDRWDVD TS-H493A is not working

  • I usually know what to do when it comes to these things but i have no idea how this happend, I came back from vacation and my noobie family had messed up the computer (Some computer guy came to fix the lost password and had to do a Factory Restart or something, now everything is lost and there's like a ton of spyware and probably viruses because they didn't install the norton protection)

    I put a disk in the drive and it doesn't work,

    I looked under my computer and the drive is not listed

    I went into device manager and theres a notification sign on it and it says:
    Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

    I checked for solutions but nothing happends

    I checked for updateds but it said my system is up-to-date

    I googled my problem and came to this site with a similar post called: Cannot Install Driver For Tsstcorp Cd/dvdw Sh-s162a Ata Device
    It said to uninstall driver then restart so i did and it tried but it said it did not install properly

    So im stuck with the same problem, if anyone can please help i would really appreciate it
    Let me know if I need to att. the dxdiag log and how to attach it
    thank you

  • In the Windows Vista article it says:

     

    3. At the command prompt, change the directory to the directory to which you extracted the DevCon files.

     

    I dont really understand what that means so in cmd I typed: C:\Users\Shalunyturns\Downloads\i386\DevCon.exe

     

    Then I got: DevCon.exe Usage: DevCon.exe [-r] [-m:\\<machine.] <command> [<arg>...]

    For more information type: DevCon.exe help

     

    The article also says:

     

    4. Type devcon stack gencdrom, and then press ENTER.

     

    So then I typed: C:\Users\Shalunyturns\Downloads\i386\DevCon.exe devcon stack gencdrom

     And I got the same message

     

    Could someone explain what I have to do?

  • Did you try the Resolution?  (Removing the UpperFilters and LowerFilters?)
  • yes did that step...i went into the registry and deleted the upper and lower filters

     

    can you explain what the rest of the steps mean....?

  • The other Steps are not required.  It is intended for the
    technically curious folks.  Did the drive return to your
    system?  If yes, you are done and have the Solution.
  • WOW i feel so stupid!!!! Yes it did return, i was just getting confused because i wasn't seeing the same cdm messages as on the help page.

     

    I apologize for being so incompetent; thank you so much!
