You actually don't need drivers for dvd roms. I think you are looking for firmware upgrades?

here's where you get all of these...

    unless you want new funtionality or your dvdrom is dead its unlikely you even need firmware. Make sure you install a fresh copy of xp home rather than an upgrade.

    also xphome is known to have access problems wheere you will need to be admin to do anything productive.

    To problem solve, start with the physical first then check the software, ie. make sure you have plugged all the cables between the cdrom and motherboard properly, check there's power to the drives then check the software.

    goodluck.

My cd rom works, but the dvd part does not. I am poor and can not afford to buy a replacement. How can I make the dvd rom work?


You will need to find the make and model number of this DVD ROM device and then visit the makers website. See their support/downloads section.
Once there check for the latest drivers for this particular device for your version of Windows.

Make and model number can be found on the top of the DVD drive, or check Windows device manager. Right click My Computer in the Start menu and Select Properties, then click the hardware tab, then click device manager.

A driver update for this device may be all that it needs.

A last resort would be to flash the firmware of the DVD drive to the latest version. This is a last resort as a failed attempt will render the drive useless. Often though it solves the problem. If you do go for this method, you will need to download and install only the latest firmware update for this EXACT DVD ROM drive must be used.

Take care!

I have an SR1000 SR182ONX desktop, but the front of my built in DVD/CD writer/player say SR192ONX. I can't burn or play DVDs. The current driver (TS-H552L) says it is not a writer. I need the correct...


It sounds like your operating system quit seeing your dvd/cd writer/player.
to check this locate mycomputer icon, or goto start and locate computer and right click on it.
a window will open, click on properties, then left click on Device manager you will see all the devices on your computer, and you should see DVD/CD-ROM drives in the list of devices. if you right click on this you have a choice of scan for new devices or Properties, if you scan for new devices chances are it will not find you dvd/cd-rom device, windows operating system very seldom does. so click on properties,
You will see several choices like reload driver, update driver, uninstall drive depending on your operating system. If you have the DVD/CD-rom device cd with the software driver then and only then you may uninstall the driver, so you can reload it to make the operating system see the device after you reboot the computer, then install the driver again... If you do not know what I'm talking about...Take the computer back to the repair shop and have them to the repairs to make the Windows Operating system see the DVD/CD-rom device.

Good luck...

Please take the time to remove SP3 then try to reinstall all your drivers. You should be good at that point. SP3 is known to cause some issues with drivers not working right.

usually the driver.. if needed comes with as part of windows... check windows update website and do a manual update search (instead of automatic)...

check the hardware manufacturer website for an updated driver.

My Cd-Rom/DVD-rom don't work. It doesn't open any folder. I thought I have problems with drivers: SCSIVAX DVD/CD-ROM SCSI CdrOM DEVICE DVD-ROM SD-R2102 TOSHIBA LAPTOP SATELLITE 5005-S507 THANKS, OSCAR


According to the Toshiba website, the scsi cd-rom/dvd-rom does not require a driver to operate, but the driver for the scsi controller card it plugs into may need to be reinstalled or updated. Visit the following link, and go to the section labeled scsi cdrom/dvdrom. At the bottom of this section there are two links to websites where you may be able to find the drivers for your scsi controller card.
