If replacing a Phillips SDVD8431 with a Phillips SDVD8441 do I need to change the driver?


First try this:
Start>Computer RIGHT CLICK on Computer
Properties>Device Manager
Go to DVD/CD-ROM Drives; Locate SDVD8441; Instead of Disable, select UNINSTALL.
Reboot
Allow Windows to rediscover.
You may wish to be online so Windows can download the latest driver for you as part of the re-installation process.
Don't be alarmed if Windows rediscovers your drive as QSI SDW-082k -- that is just another name for the same drive (SDVD8441).

If that doesn't work, try re-installing the firmware. Download it from Gateway at http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/getFile.asp?id=20535&dscr=Philips%20DVD%20Drive%20Firmware%20Update%20for%20Gateway%20MX6428%20Notebook%20&&uid=30066654&uid=30066662 or Google PhillipsPA49.exe to find another trusted source.

You can use programs like Nero to burn data onto a disc such as a CD-RW. Since you already have a DVD burner you can even use a DVD-RW to burn your data
