Oddly enough, you don't need drivers for the CD/DVD drives to work. They aren't even recognized unless you have a non-microsoft burning program, like Roxio or NTI CD and DVD maker. Sounds to me like your DVD burning program may be corrupted. Those programs are worth updating. Find out what burning software you have-- its easy and FREE. Download Belarc Advisor, which not only tells you everything in your computer, with model numbers for hardware and all of your software (with their unique codes), including the manumacturers, and will also inform you if you are missing any needed Windows updates. Once you know what you have, if it came with the computer, seek an update at the computer manufacturer's website, as it may be a special program not related to the burning software purchased from the software manufacturer---go to their website for upgrades. Let me know if you run into trouble.

I ended up replacing the CD/DVD read- writer , as I was informed that this behavior indicates that it is dying , and this particular model was a cheap piece of garbage. This information was given to me from a local computer repair shop, who had had many pass through their doors; and after attempting everything else, replacing the drive tended to be the cheapest and easiest solution.

driver and firmware for HL-DT-ST-DVDRRW GWA 4164B - acer.gifnk: Guru Expert
That is ********..... the "Belarc Advisor" tells you nothing about DVD RW drive at all. I wasted my time and bandwidth to look and download it for nothing.
I think this bloke is a "Guru" of some ********.
I also have the same DVD drive (RWA-4164B) it doesn't recognize any DVD but only sees CD.
Does anybody actually know anything in this forum to fix it, the drive is only 31 days old
