Question about LG CRD 8400B (CRD-8400) Internal 40x CD-ROM Drive
Do I need a driver to use with Windows 2000 sp6?
I have found that you rarely ever need a driver for cd roms in windows 2000 and above especially if it is just a reader... most of the time if Windows can't detect which brand or model it is it will label it as generic... a writer on the other hand may require a driver, but even that is very rare.
