Sony AW-Q170A-B2 DVD RW Dual burner - drivers needed?

I purchased the internal DVD burner below...do I need to install a driver or anything to to use it? I got it used and have no software. I believe I've installed it correctly, but when I got to install Pinnacle Studio 11, I get the "SETUP.EXE has encountered an problem and needs to close" error.

Sony AW-Q170A-B2 18x DL DVD±RW Internal DVD Burner

I don't have DVD playing software either...

Not sure what I need to get next in order to install Pinnacle & watch DVDs.

Help!

    I just installed this drive in my system. When I check the explorer window it shows that it is the DVD-RW Drive. It will not record at all. There was no cables with this drive so I set it on the same cable as the cd-rw drive. I am trying to find instruction on what I need to do to set this up so it works.

    Can someone email me at floyap@yahoo.com so I can get this to work please.

    Thanks!

I installed this drive on my dell Dimension. The system recognized the drive but would not do any more than open and close the drive. I resolved my problem by flashing the firmware. There is a site where you can download the firmware update. Here it is and good luck, its a good drive when you get it to work.....

I dont know what version your operating system is but you can try 2 things....
First; right click set up program fro your DVD drivers set up software and chose properties, then click on "compatibility tab" and place a check mark in the "run this program in compatibility mode " close up properties for program and try to install. if this doesn't work then try extracting the drivers to a setperate folder on your disk and run the driver update wizard from the device manager in windows, tell it NOT to search for a driver to install that you will install from a list or other location and navigate to the folder where you extracted your drivers and choose the drivers you downloadedd for you burner then reboot
