    Sony cd-rw crx217E driver causes error code 39 on Windows XP

    I am not able to enable or install the device driver for Sony cd-rw crx217E on my PC running on Windows XP. Whenever I make an attempt for that, I get a notification saying “Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. Driver might be corrupted or missing (Code 39)”. Can I remove this error in any way?

    Refresh the device manager and check whether the issue get resolved or not after that. As a first step, make a single press on the ‘Start’ button. By the time you can view the start menu, click the ‘Run’ option from it. Locate ‘Open’ label from the ‘Run’ dialog box and type devmgmt.msc into the field next to it. After that, hit the ‘Enter’ key and wait until the ‘Device Manager’ window opens on the screen. Then, you will be prompted to enter the location for scan. Choose your PC during this time. Get into the ‘Action’ menu afterwards and click the ‘Scan for hardware changes’ option. Finally, quit the ‘Device Manager’ window and restart the PC.

    You can do a number of things to solve the issue.

    Check the Disk that contains the Driver file for Sony CD-RW.

    Download from Sony.com the Driver file providing exact model of the Drive. Install it after uninstalling the previous installed driver.

    Click Start > Type "Run" in the search field to invoke "Run" > Locate "Open" > type devmgmt.msc into the text field > "Enter" > in "Device Manager" enter the location for scan , select you PC > "Action" > "Scan for hardware changes" >Exit > restart the PC.
