DVD drives don't have specific drivers under windows. If it isn't operating correctly, it could be due to filter issues or your ASPI layer could be gerfunkled.

WinXP manual steps to delete the UpperFilters and LowerFilters registry values that can cause CD access problems;
Warning ! Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall your operating system.

To manually delete the UpperFilters and LowerFilters registry values, follow these steps:

1. Start Registry Editor (Start, Run, Regedit)
2. Locate the UpperFilters value under the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
3. On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.
4. Locate the LowerFilters value under the same key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
5. On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.
6. Quit Registry Editor.
NOTE: After you remove the Upperfilters value and the Lowerfilters value, if you notice lost functionality in a particular program, such as CD recording software, you may need to reinstall that software. If the problem recurs, consult with the software vendor for assistance.
7. Restart your computer.

Phillips dvd+rw dvd8701 in my dell not working


How is it not working? CD drives do not have a very long life span and they often will quit working after some time. You more than likely need to get a new drive to replace the broken one - to ensure that your new drive lasts longer be sure to clean it often and keep the area around your computer fairly clean.
Dust is the biggest killer of computers and computer parts.

How to install a new dvd burner into the sony desktop pc PCV-RX755(UC)? How to take out the old DVD rom and put a new one in ? Thanks ...I don't know how to open the hard drive...


You don't want to open the hard drive. Just open the cover to your desktop PC; have a philips screwdriver handy, and then go in, unscrew or un-snap (depending on the situation). Carefully remove the ribbon cable and power connector. Your old drive should just slide out. (Note: You may have to remove the front facade to your PC before the old drive will slide out.)

Once the old one is out, just slide the new one in and reconnect power and data cables. Re-attach front facade if it was necessary to remove (I have a hunch it needed to come off), restart Windows. Your OS should let you know that it has detected a new device. From there, make sure you have Internet and then put in that you want to search the internet for a driver for the new drive. If one is not available, just use the one that came with a CD-ROM that you should have received with the new drive.

Hope this helps.

How to remove the CD rom drive in a HP Pavalon slimline client?


See the panel on the side of the DVD Drive? remove that by lifting it backwards, it has a black button on top of it, remove it and now you have access to the screws on the side of the DVD drive, after unscrewing there's a button on the opposite side, push it sideways to unlock the drive and push the DVD drive out of the casing. Hope you figure it out.

I can't write with my DVD Philips SDVD 8821. May I need the driver for my DVD Philips SDVD 8821? Or I must to do anything else. Thanks


To read and write I use NERO. You can download a trial version. You have to have burning software. I have a feeling your computer installed the DVD but, go to control panel, system folder and open it. You should see a hardware tab click it. Open the device manager and see if your dvd player is listed. If it isn't then go to the DVD maker (Philips) site and see if they have a download for a driver for it, or the computer make might have software for it.

Dimension 4600 cd/dvd drives not responding


Try uninstalling them in devive manager then rebooting and see 
if they are reinstalled automaticaly as drivers should be in xp already.

Just right click on them and select uninstall.

If that doesnt work then try update drivers and let xp search online for them.

Failing that then try changing the cable thats attatched to the motherboard.

Hope that helps? :)
