Since the entire drive can be purchased for around $70, it is unlikely that the optics are available or for that matter less than that cost. You will find it less money to replace the drive. The optics are not available as separate components.

Asus DRW-241st stopped recognizing any DVD's though it still reads CD's. Other then that it seems to be running just fine.


Good day sir, Try to clean it with a CD lens cleaner if problem persist.I recommend replacing your optical disk drive or use it as a slave for reading CD's so that your new ODD will last long. in my opinion most DVDRAM, player etc. can read most formats except Bluray disc. using the device from reading CD,VCD and DVD lessen's the device life span.
sometimes if we rarely use the ODD its already not working.

My CD will not open when I press (''open'')


Hi, Gary.

Give these a try:

In My Computer, right-click your CD's drive letter and select Eject.

Open a paper clip and insert in a tiny pinhole in the drive.

Hope one of these helps.

I got a ASUS DRW-2014L1T CD-RW and have no driver can anyone tell me pls where i can download a driver or post the link, would be very thankfull ( milojica90@hotmail.com for contacting me )


Here is the link for the ASUS downloads.

http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
Choose Optical storage then DVD RW then your model number

The DRW-2014L1T is a DVD-RW and the drivers are incorporated with windows drivers. Are you looking for the burning software, like Nero or Roxio? Or is the unit not working at all?

My email is jdaniher@verizon.net.

Are you the Administrator, and do you have the Administrator's password?

If so, then log in as Administrator and make the necesary changes.

However, if not, then you must reinstall the OS, to establish yourself as such.

ASUS DVD RW model DRW-1814BL


try reinstalling your operating system ( try format your cd or just repair it). The system will automatically detect the driver for your drive but if it was not listed in the bios try checking the cables attached to your drive.. or still if not.. the drive may be damaged.

Playing but no sound


HI there check that the sound control on windows that the cd audio isn't set to nute or is too low. Failing this check that the audio cable is in the back of the computer also check that the audio cable is inserted in the cd drive inside the computer (Little gray cable).

Thanks J

Really slow burning


Joel, I would try updating the firmware. I had a problem with a DVD Burner that didn't work out of the box until I updated the firmware. You can find you update here: http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us That should help. Good Luck, Tim
