I have just reinstalled my system and installed the programs. But i have noticed that, my GCC-4247N driver cannot load with The operating system error. I cannot use my DVd-ROM, because the Vista cannot locate the drivers. I have spent 3-4 hours just reformating the computer, installing the latest drivers and the software. Please do not tell me to reformat the computer and do all these again. is there any thing i can do to reinstall this driver? I have tried uninstalling, updating. They don't seem to work correctly..

please look at your device manager, if your cd-rom is porperly installed. (No yellow sign on it).
If it is istalled well, then may be your hardware is faulty, normally you don´t need drivers to get it running.
You can check your drive with PC-Doctor from recovery partition, or boot with a Live CD,
like Knoppix and look if your drive is noticed and operable.

Device manager tells me that "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing.(Code 39)." there is a exclamation mark right on the Cd-Rom icon. Drive seems to be fine, cuz it can boot from cd.

I have been having a similar problem for months, and also tried restoring the computer to factory settings.
The DVD RAM (Mat**bleep**a UJ-852) spins and seems to be loading, but then nothing launches and it's not recognized in My Computer. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver and get the message: "Device driver was not successfully installed". When I right click on the driver in properties it says "This device cannot start". Yet it spins when I put a disk in so something is working. I've also tried resetting the player in the bay.

I am having the same issue with the same error. This has occurred since I ran Lenovo's System Update utility. I have a colleague running the same version of Vista on similar hardware and he has not go this issue. I suspect mine is an issue with the firmware as it was working fine until I executed a firmware update from System Update.
Does anyone know if you can roll back the firmware or install a previous version?
