The only reason for needing firmware for a HDD no matter what kind it is would be if the HDD has some kind of utility embedded on it
such as like one touch back up , I have never heard of an internal
HDD needing firmware . the HDD are static and need to be formatted before using them . other than that there isn't even
a driver , and I recommend if the internal drive does has some kind of utility on it don't use it especially for the master C: drive , the one
that holds your operating system , thus will cause critical errors
and make your computer fail .

Need dvd rom drivers

If you are using Windows OS, most of the CD/DVD Rom drivers are generic you do not need to install any drivers for the devices to function. If it is the firmware that need updating, go to the manufacturer support to download the firmware file to update your DVD Rom firmware.

If your Windows system cannot detect your DVD Rom, it could be your DVD drive had failed. Is the DVD drive settings for set correctly ie. if your DVD drive is of IDE interface. No settings is required for SATA interface.

Hope it helps.

Need drivers for my DVD/CD RW

optical drives are like hard drives which work as plug and plays. They are automatically detected by the operating system. What is provided for optical drives are usually firmware updates if needed. You can check out the web site of your notebook manufacturer as they usually post drivers and firmware updates for your system, or search the model of your drive through its specific manufacturer to look for firmware updates.

I downloaded a driver for my DVD AOpen DUW1616/ARR, it is an exe file. When I doubleclick on it nothing happens

It is not a driver, it is firmware. Usually firmware has to be installed via a different Application. the OS should recognize your DVD drive/burner without need for a driver.

You just answered your question......."all drivers I assume present and ok" update your old are the drivers for WIN98? how old are the drivers for XP. These are relevant to having the correct drivers for the correct operating system. The benefit for you is that you are running to operating systems seperately on two drives or am I mistaken. They need an update on the drivers for each OS and not a firmware update one is hardware the other is software? Your problem is the software.
