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.

Option (1)
To resolve this issue, use the Windows XP Recovery Console to replace the Msvcrt.dll file with the original version. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Insert your Windows XP CD-ROM into the computer's CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer from the CD-ROM.

    NOTE: Some computers may require that you modify the basic input/output system (BIOS) settings before you can start the computer from a CD-ROM. For information about how to modify BIOS, see your computer documentation.
  2. At the Welcome to Setup screen, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  3. Press the number key that corresponds to the installation that you want to repair, and then press ENTER.
  4. Type the Administrator password, and then press ENTER.
  5. With the Windows XP CD-ROM still in the CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each command:
    • cd system32
    • ren msvcrt.dll msvcrt.old
    • CD-ROM_or_DVD-ROM_Drive_Letter:
    • cd \i386
    • expand msvcrt.dl_ BootDriveLetter:\windows\system32
    • exit
    NOTE: BootDriveLetter refers to the drive letter of the boot drive. In other words, it refers to the drive where the Windows folder is located, which is probably drive C. CD-ROM_or_DVD-ROM_Drive_Letter refers to the drive letter of the CD-ROM or the drive letter of the DVD-ROM drive. The CD-ROM drive or the DVD-ROM drive are frequently located in drive D.

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?

Even if you don't have driver for CD-DVD ROM with the Operating System,your BIOS must recognize the CD ROM.Set the BIOS to Default setting and check it recognise now.Check if you have disable anything related to CD ROM in your BIOS. Remove your CD Rom and place it again and check.

Drive light comes because of power supply to the CD-ROM.

If nothing works,Download the firmware update

My pc won't boot from cd-rom... Bios recognizes both cd-rom drive and hdd, and boot sequence is set to boot from cd-rom but when it comes to boot from the windows XP install dvd it shows the message...


you are saying two differnt things here.. CDROM and DVD if its a dvd in a CD ROM it will not boot a windows disk if somehow this is written to a DVD Is it original?
Secondly is the Cd ( or DVD drive) actaully working. Being listed in CMOS does not guarantee that.

I know you have listed the drive as DVD but do you have 1 or two drives installed and not have the disk in the recognised drive.; have to eliminatge all possibilities of werror in interpretation here.

So assuming everything appears as it should, then the medial in the drive has to be considered at fault .. dirty disk.. drive needs iris clean, not an original disk, damaged disk, not a boot disk.. just a windows cvopy.;

Samsung DVD Rom Drive does not read disks


Usually when you buy a DVD ROM drive it comes with software. However, I bought a LG one and it didn't come with any software. All I can tell you is to update the system BIOS and the firmware that came with the drive. Look on the top part of the drive when you take it out of the system.

Go to the manufacturer's website and download updated firmware for the unit.
