    I have a Dell Optiplex 755 and my DVD RW won't work either. If I look in explorer, it doesn't even exist. Device manager displays no issues or conflicts whatsoever. I checked cables and they are all connected correctly. Power works fine. The drive ejects and lights up just fine, but won't read. I haven't checked to make sure that it was Master or Slave yet. I'm going to do that right now.

    Can't find driver for md-16dvd9-8x


    If you are using any operating system newer than Windows 98, you don't need to install a driver. The BIOS will recognise the unit and Windows will get it's info from there. If you just installed the unit make sure you have the jumper settings correct i.e. Master or Slave, on the back of drive. If in doubt check the old unit you replaced.

    Unable to burn using a LG GSA H58N DVD burner


    With the built in drivers for windows XP it can identify and use DVD-RW facilities of DVD burner. However depending on your bios your machine can fail to burn DVDs if your bios can not recognise that output.

    While loading the CD that comes with the DVD-RW did you get an error message if yes then it means you BIOS is failing to recognise your DVD-RW as an output method try to update the BIOS. But before you do that if you can try adding the drive on a modern (after 2002) machine with xp and see if it can burn DVDs there without adding any drivers.

    if it fails on that other machine then you can be sure its not your BIOS but a problem with drive (which I suspect most actually). But if it works then then you need to update your machine bios.
