Re: My cd/dvd driver is not recognised Code 19

MS Windows now usually has drivers in the OS. Go to the device manager in the control panel and right click on the CD Rom and uninstall. Then, reboot your comptuer. This should reinstall your drivers. If this does not work, there actuallly may be a hardware issue with the drive.
