Re: Thinkpad T61 CD/DVD

How are you?


Go to this website and run the "FixIT" utility provided by Microsoft:


This should make that error code 39 go away. If not reseat the CD/DVD drive and reboot the unit.


Let me know if this fixes everything.







Do NOT PM me with technical issues. Post in the forum for assistance. Thanks
