You usually don't need a driver for dvd rom drive, the controller is right on the device and if you can't see the dvd rom drive in my computer or device manager check if the jumper configuration is correct and if your power cable is properly seated as well as the data cable on you dvd drive and your motherboard.

usually the driver.. if needed comes with as part of windows... check windows update website and do a manual update search (instead of automatic)...

check the hardware manufacturer website for an updated driver.

My hp 16x dvd r/rw dual layer ram lightscribe optical disk drive is no longer performing,what generic product will replace it? I can do without the lightscribe!


They are all as bad as each other... no seriously, any of the "Brand Names" will be a good bet. I like, Pioneer, NEC, ASUS, Mitsubishi, are all good. Don't go the Blu-ray quite yet.

My drive plays DVD's but will not read CD-ROM ? it did at one time is this a setting error


DVD and CD require different spec lasers (DVD requires 1.3nm compared to 2.1nm for CD)

It seems like your CD laser is broken, although your DVD laser still works. Replace the drive, it's not too expensive.
