CD/DVD Drive

Hi..
I've been having trouble with my CD/DVD, I can't get it to work.. I've tried to add and remove the hardware and eject or unplug it but it won't let me. It comes up with this:

'This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)'

I'm not much of a computer genius, what does this mean? My friend said my hardrive is probably broken.. is this true?

Thanks in advance.

well if your hard drive was broken your computer wouldnt even boot up. But the CD/DVD might be busted. Is it a new one that you have just installed? or one that has been in there a while? Is it a custom machine, or a pre-build (dell, hp, whatnot)? Do you know the brand of drive it is?

well it sounds to me like either your cd-drive has gone bad, or the driver has accidently been deleted. Is this the drive you have?

hmmm this might or might not work...

there is a link off to the right, says "detect the cd/dvd drive in my PC"

click that and follow the instructions. Hopefully it will tell you which drive you have, and if it works the way i hope it works, it should let you download any files you need for it. But if nothing else it should hopefully tell us the exact model.

No, that hasn't worked. I downloaded phillips intelligent agent but it only sent me updates. I went to the FAQs on the site and it told me to do something with my nero but it wouldn't detect my CD drive.
Is there any other way i could install the driver, or am i gonna have to admit defeat and get it repaired?
