Re: how to install an apoen 5224 crw

If you have only a hard drive apart from this CDRW look at the connection to the hard drive and follow to the IDE0 connecter on the mobo.(do not connect CDRW to this as it will slow up the harddrive). Next to this will be another connector IDE1, if you already have a device connected to this there will be an IDE cable already there. On the IDE cable half way up will be another connector, connect this to your CDRW and set the plastic cap jumper to the SLAVE position. If no device connected you need an ide cable from the connector on the motherboard to the CDRW and set the jumper at the back at slave. Just remember if you have two peices of hardware on one cable one is set at 'MASTER' and one is set at 'SLAVE'. Don't forget to connect the power lead from the power supply unit to CDRW. Restart pc and it will be auto detected.

Yamaha CRW4260tx CD-RW drive Windows 8.1 driver

You're out of luck, Microsolutions went out of business long before the introduction of Windows 8.1. If this is a scsi drive, you will need the driver for the scsi card only. Once installed, the system will automatically pick up the drive during boot.

Hello i have loss my crw 4406eu installing software plz kindly tell me that where ican get

There is no such thing - optical drives use all the same generic driver. If you need a burning program then use this one, it's free.

Drivers for installation Yamaha CRW 4416SX Burner


there are no drivers for any cd or dvd burner. please connect the burner to the computer properly, read the instruction manual.

connect power to the drive and a usb or data cable to it and to the computer, use only one cable.

then you need a burning program, no other programs or drivers needed, the drive is installed automatically when plugged in properly.

Install asus crw 5224a in ubuntu

I think that you have an internal unit not an external one like pictured.

Just hook it up like normal and try booting your system with an Ubuntu Live Cd in your drive. It should just work.

Ok... maybe you'll have to explore your BIOS to find how to let the system boot from a CD, but that's usually a bit of quick trial and error.

Good luck.

Because you are trying to install the wrong driver.
Go do windows update and windows will install the correct driver for you, this will work on windows xp, vista and windows 7 only, you did no state your OS.

My LG GH-22LP20 Super Multi DVD Rewriter cannot read anymore DVDs. It can only read CDs. How do I solve this? Help!

It's "dying" -- replace it. If it is an "external" casing, with an "internal" DVD-writer inside, you could open the casing, remove the "dead" drive, buy a new drive, and install it into the case.

Aopen DUW1608/ARR Problem

Right click on my computer>properties>device manager>hardware and look for line saying cd/dvd drives and highlight your dvd burner. Right click it and click uninstal. Restart your pc and Windows will automatically re install it. See if this works, if not either needs a lazer clean disc or you need to replace it they are cheap these days.
