I need driver for Hitachi GD2000 2X ATAPI/E IDE DVD-ROM Drive to complete a win7 install


You're not going to get an install then. If that is NOT an OEM Install disc, you might have to try another drive to do the install with. Most ATAPI/IDE Drives are run by the BIOS.

My hp laptop cd rom is not detecting the cds. i want to formate my laptop.


Hi there, do not format now. Just try these.
Run the driver disk & install the CD/DVD driver. After finish the setup restart your pc or laptop. Hope that time your CD rom detecting the cds. But make sure, that your rom is working. Because if the cd rom is damaged then after formatting you can't install the operating system. May be your cd rom lens is damaged & that's why he can't read the cds or dvds. I suggest you Visit a service center & check the cd rom only. If you able to view the cd rom driver in side the my computer then, i am sure your vd rom lens is damaged.
Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Cd rom recognised as cd audio


They will definately need drivers to be able to give out 100% of the performance.
You definately might have receive a disk while purchased the CD/DVD ROM.
Try that driver once and see the difference.
