Hi, My computer doesnt recognize the cd\dvd drive....

Hello there!
You won't probably be able to find drives because Sony, the makers of Optiarc, rely on Windows to supply the drivers.

You can right click the devices and remove them. If Windows asks, check the box to removed files as well.

Then reboot the computer. That may do it on it's own.

If not, run Windows update, and make sure to check the section about optional updates.

Windows vista updated and now my optiarc dvd rw drive won't work

You will have to uninstall the drive and reinstall again. I think the drivers for the drive is not properly installed. But if all this does not work, then I think you will have to do a system restore.

Best wishes

I cannot use my Optiarc DVD RW AD-7530 ATA Device

don't worry frn, this is not your DVD's fault. it will happen due to the cd's speed, while recording to the CD's if you burn cd's or DVD in very high speed then some of the DVD's cann't support that why your dVD do. so be sure that you have the CDs that are coppied with less speed. or it will happen due to the dust in lens of DVD so use the lens clearner CD to clean the lens i hope that it will ok. byee
