Question about Sony CRX835E CD-RW/DVD-ROM (Combo) Burner
I inherited this Dell Inspirion Windows XP Home Edition .ca 2005 after my my much better HP Compaq XP Pro Edition was burgled, earlier this year. This one reads CDs just fine but can't read any kind of DVD. I keep trying to find a place to download a proper driver. Someone on another e-list claimed that Windows XP installs the proper driver, but this does not seem to be the case.
DVD's show up in the file system with empty folders, so clearly the DVD is being "seen." The only .sys file in system32\drivers is cdrom.sys. Anyone know where I can get the right one?
The XP driver really should work appropriately. I might assume that the drive is damaged (which happens to me frequently with older DVD drives).
