Got a new MOBO and all that jazz. Plugged in my cd / dvd burner and it worked fine. Then all of a suddenly, it stopped working. Went to DeviceManager and uninstalled and reinstalled and it gives me this error,

"Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)

Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device."

So, went out and purchased a cheap replacement thinking it was bad. Replaced it and im getting the same error again. I hate to say it, but im not sure what the problem is. It is recognizing in Bios but the shit just aint working. Bad IDE you think?

I'm thinking it's a software error with windows, but more likely a problem with the mobo

EDIT - try replacing the cable just to be sure

sounds like your registry may have been corrupted by the dvd drivers. you might need to reinstall windows, or go back to a restore point.

or stick your os installer disc in and try a repair.

I always forget about the restore points

so what you want to do is go download something from microsoft called genuine advantage. this will do a quick repair of your registry.
