USB Conect needs XP driver???

Just unpacked my dvd unit. Pluged it into my XP machine, and was told I need some drivers. Looked online, lots of firmware update drivers available, but liteon corp. says no drivers needed for XP.

Clearly something is wrong. HELP

Re: USB Conect needs XP driver???

You really shouldn't need drivers for this drive in WinXP. I could be wrong on this one.

Check under device manager for DVD/CDROM drives. It should be listed once it is connected.

Hello threw away my install dvd for my LiteOn DX-20A4PU and am trying to find a driver online or a dvd to re-buy any suggestions?

there arent any drivers for DVDs. The CD you threw out probably had some cheap/trial CD burining software, but that comes pre-set in XP/Vista/Win7 anyways, so you don't really need anything that was on that CD.

HI when i put disk in cd rom drive the computer only reads for about 3 seconds and then the message says insert a son has been burning a lot of disks lateluy and not sure why it broke so soon,only...

Loading new device-drivers will not help.
In the first few seconds, the drive is trying to read the first few blocks of data from the media, to see if it is a "data" or "music" or "blank" CD. If nothing can be read (dead laser?) then you get the "insert a disk" message.

> do I need a new unit?

Yes; spend $40 to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

Is this a windows XP or Vista unit? You are getting that because either the driver is still not installed or you have installed an incompatible driver for your CDROM.

External USB DVD-RW

Hi Nick,
this may be a driver conflict issue, either with your factory fitted drive.
try going into system/device manager and see if its in there, click remove or uninstall, reboot and plug the drive in again, go through the add new hardware wizard if need be.
the other suggestion, is to remove all USB devices from The device manager, reboot and the system will re-install the USB port drivers.
