my DVD/CD-ROM drive (ATAPI DVD W DH16W1P ATA Device) is not working none of my disks i insert are being read and in the Computer file it doesnt show the driver at all then in the Device Manager when i click on it (ATAPI DVD W DH16W1P ATA Device) under General in the Device status box it says

" This device cannot start. (Code 10)
Click 'Check for solutions' to send data about this device to Microsoft and to see if there is a solution available."

yet when i click on 'Check for solutions' it does nothing till my next log in and even then its no help because it say that there is no solution
will the uninstalling process work for this problem too because i dont want to do it and have the PC not be able to locate it later and if some one has a differant and sure solution please help me also keep in mind that my windows program is Vista... i think its home edition not to sure on that one anyways for those who can help me please contact me at ([email protected]) thanks

keep in mind that this only temporarily fixes the problem it may go out again every so often

ok this is my method:
go into control panel click hardware and sound then click device manager then open the
IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers, file, now u should see sumthn that says IDE Channel 0, single click it, u should now have in the tool bar at top 3 new icons 1 with an arrow pointing up, a pc with an X, and a pc with an arrow pointing down click the last 1 to disable the controller then restart the computer go back into the device manager and enable the controller u just disabled then go into computer and check to see if the drive is there if not then disable all the Controllers that "can be" disabled restart and enable them, it should be there after that ive found that it mainly happens mainly when u perform an update to the system.
oh if u dont see IDE Channel 0 then just disable them all lol
