Look in bios - if its in there then look in device ,manager if its listed there then it should be listed in my computer. - you dont need drivers to use it so if you have not disconnected it - then its come to the end of its life and a replacement will be required

Windows cannot load the device driver


you need to right click on the device, from the view with the yellow triangle, and update the driver or roll back the driver.
failing that , download driver max and it will find the driver for you.

Please,when i put in a dvd-rw cd,my dvd-rom doesn't recognise it.Please help.


what model? did you check device manager ? go to computer management -> storage-> see if your disk is listed there. If you can see you drive , try to update firmware. If that doesn't work .. scan your computer (ccleaner, sypboot ......- but i am thinking this could not be the problem, but try) if that doesn't work, you have to buy a new one, this was the problem for me with samsung disk dvd rw... what burner do you have ? if nero try to instal incd or something called like that , this is support for rewritable dvd (cd's). My dvd also didn't work because i didn't instal incd with nero, but that was nero 6.0.. try all of this and let me know how did you pass. I can help you with log me in if you wan't. cheers

My samsungsd616tdvd drive cannot play or read dvd-rw cds.


Please note that the formats of DVD and CD are quite different. Whereas a DVD drive can handle both DVD and CD, a CD drive can only handle cd formats. Furthermore, a drive that reads both formats does not necessarily mean it can handle the writing aspect ok. You need a drive that is capable of writing/burning DVD. Most drives that come along with pcs can only write CDs but able to read both. So check your drive to see whether or not it can write on DVDs ok. Good luck
