Question about ASUS (90-N801W1000) DVD-RAM/DVD-RW Burner

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,

    I couldn`t use either of my Optical Drives and I was therefore unable (or I didn`t have the confidence to try) to do as you suggested, re-install my operating system, but I found what looked like was the answer on the Microsoft Vista Support page you pointed me to. The Registry was corrupted when I removed a couple of Free DVD Burn programs, I took it to a repair shop and the engineer corrected the problem, it only took 1/2 an hour and it only cost £5.
    I am very pleased to tell you that my Optical Drives are up and running again, many thanks for your help and advice,

    Kind regards,


    y the my The information you supplied in the form of a on my problem

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.

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

I got a ASUS DRW-2014L1T CD-RW and have no driver can anyone tell me pls where i can download a driver or post the link, would be very thankfull ( [email protected] for contacting me )

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?

My email is [email protected].
