ASUS DVD RW model DRW-1814BL

My ASUS DVD DRW-1814 BL writer was purchased last summer, it was working up until this morning, I looked in the Bios but it is no longer listed there now and the Device Manager states that its driver might be corrupted (Code 39)?
I have Vista Home Premium 64 Bit and my CPU is an AMD AM2 Dual core 5600.
Can you help please,

Try reinstalling your operating system ( try format your cd or just repair it). The system will automatically detect the driver for your drive but if it was not listed in the bios try checking the cables attached to your drive.. or still if not.. the drive may be damaged.

If it is not registering in your OS as a drive and doesn't map in BIOS then the drive is bad and needs to be replaced. It's about $25 USD from or there are other brands around the same price.

you should not need to go to the ASUS website Click Here Select "optical storage" "DVD-RW" and select your drive from the dropdown list.
You will then need to select your Operating system and then you will be able to download your drivers

Here is the link for the ASUS downloads.
Choose Optical storage then DVD RW then your model number

The DRW-2014L1T is a DVD-RW and the drivers are incorporated with windows drivers. Are you looking for the burning software, like Nero or Roxio? Or is the unit not working at all?

Are you the Administrator, and do you have the Administrator's password?

If so, then log in as Administrator and make the necesary changes.

However, if not, then you must reinstall the OS, to establish yourself as such.

Does not read dvd

According to Asus there are many burned dvd formats that are not supported or simply do not work in this drive. Asus stated that most dvd-r should work but not all, and that is the only burned dvd media that works. You may want to look into buying a different drive.
