DVD devices have Code 19 in Device Manager with Vista Home Premium RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a DVD issue with "Windows Vista™ Home Premium SP1" where I am not able to use my DVD players. One is a SATA and the other is a USB. Both these players will boot the Windows Vista™ Home Premium source CD. These disk can be read from the bios level. These disk are functional on another system.


    ** I received hotfix Windows6.0-KB928253-x86

    The Windows Update Standalone Installer is not installing this hotfix.
    I get the following message in a dialog box: "The update does not apply to your system"
    ** Device status for both SATA and USB DVD writer:
    Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)

    Hi Janowens,


    Unfortunately, this forum focuses only on OS level topics related to CDROM.SYS, IMAPI v2 and Live File System. This forum is primarily intended for application developers and our bandwidth does not currently allow us to handle requests related to optical issues observed in concrete applications supporting CD/DVD burning. We recommend you use other support channels for such user-level issues; for example, http://support.microsoft.com for Microsoft products.


    Sorry for being unable to provide a solution for your problem.
