Topic: Arduino error code 39 in device manager (Read 112 times) previous topic - next topic


So recently my PC's hard drive failed, which had the Arduino IDE installed. Ever since I replaced the disk and began restoring what I could, I noticed that I couldn't flash any of my Arduinos. They all show in device manager, but all with an error:

Code: [Select]
Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

{Path Not Found}
The path %hs does not exist.

Google hasn't come up with anything that has worked - how can I get my Arduinos working again?


  • Click on the "Driver" tab.
  • Click "Update Driver".
  • Click "Browse my computer for driver software".
  • Select the drivers subfolder of the Arduino IDE installation folder.
  • Check "Include Subfolders".
  • Click "Next".

Hopefully that will reinstall the driver and fix the problem.


I've already tried that. I still get the same error regardless of what driver is installed.
