Question about IBM Multi-burner (22P9166) (22P9166) DVD-RAM/DVD-R Burner

Driver Simply, I need a driver. It was removed accidentally it seems. Windows only recognizes the drive as a CD or DVD R and I cannot burn. I have been looking endlessly and I cannot find the driver anywhere. I no longer have the original installation CD.

you could try to format a cd then attempt to burn on it. i stricly use windows to burn my cd's but i get that error sometimes. aldo make sure your burning software is setup to use your soney vio and not your other drive. set up to burn something then when it gives you the error put the disc in your other cd burner and see if it gets recognized.

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.

Just purchased, and trying to install HP dvd1170e DVD-RAM Burner. It is recognized, but cumputer running Windows XP does not fine driver, and dvd1170e is not functional. How do I solve this?


These devices require software to burn DVD's and CD's that is NOT just a driver...

A driver is not enough... typical software is NERO and other such as CD Creator, etc..

A DVD is quite different than talking to a USB memory stick or even a hard drive and you can;t just copy a file to it like you can a hard drive.

Typically using programs such as NERO, you copy to a list within NERO and when you tell it to burn the disc, it gathers all the pieces you have selected and goes about the operation...

Driver for dvd-r 8801 need a driver for dvd player windows won't recognise it


The drivers for DVD ROM drives are built into Windows and there is no download.

If Windows does not recognize th drive then it could be a hardware issue or possibly a BIOS setting is wrong.

Does the Windows Device Manager show an un-recognized device?

Blank cd's are not recognized by the Dell Inspiron cd burner


I would first try removing the device in the control panel, system, device manager and then reinstalling the driver. There may be a problem caused by a windows update. In general CD drives rarely go bad. If the CD works say for a music CD then it should work for blank cd. You may also want to check the CD type. If you accidentally used a DVD, that won't work and in some of the older CD drives, they may not handle every type of CD format.

Good Luck

My CD/DVD player no longer works!!! HELP!!


If you are using windows XP, right click on "My Computer" go to "Properties" click on "Properties" it will Bring up a System Properties window. click on "Hardware" tab. in the middle you will see a tab that says "Device Manager" click on that. Look in the list to see if your Cd/DVD drive is shown. If it is and has a big yellow "?" on it or a yellow "?" with a "!" on top of the yellow "?" then the CD/DVD drive is still being recognized by the motherboard. In this case, replacing the driver will most likely do the trick. If you are running Vista, or Windows 7, access the Device Manager by right clicking on "My Computer" then go to "Properties".it will pop up a "Control Panel Home" window. The first entry is the "Device Manager" click on that to open the device manager. From there, the same thing applies to the XP instructions. If the CD/DVD is not listed in the list, try rebooting the system then repeat the process. If the CD/DVD still does not show up, there is most likely a problem with the drive or motherboard not recognizing the drive. If the latter seems to be the issue then taking it to a reputable repair facility might be your only option. If it is the yellow "?" you should be able to find the driver at HP's website http://www.hp.com/#Support once this is downloaded, double click on the file and it should start running the driver installer. Then just follow the prompts of the installer.
