Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing.

So the other day I started to get this error for my DVD-R drive "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)", I was so confused because I didn't do anything that would had cause such an error, and after trying to let windows automatically detect and re-install the driver, it still gave the same error, even using the driver that came with the DVD Drive and still came with that error, I figure for sure that my DVD drive ROM memory got corrupted somehow, I even try doing a firmware upgrade but didn't work since my OS could not talk to the DVD Drive, so I figure it is a bad one, so I send it back to the store that I got it from and they send me a new one, same brand and model, I plugged it in an didn't work either.

Device Driver Software was not succesfully installed

Device Driver Software was not succesfully installed 2

I got the same error message, that's where I figure ... it must a OS software issues, after a few minutes of searching and searching I found  KB article that had the solution to my problem.

I hope that if you are having the same problem, this would work for you too.
