What you will need is software to operate the burner.
Windows just installs these as CD/DVD drives using software to comunicate with optical drives. No additional drivers are needed.
Download a copy of Nero or use the version that would have come with it if it was a retail drive. (comes in a box with goodies)

Nero can be downloaded from HERE

Acts like a Player/CD burner


I have an IDE Memorex DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner (52x32x16) that has burned well over 300 cd/dvd' sense 2004 when I bought it. In 2006 or 7, an update was given to it via memorex sight - I was told to keep a copy of the dn ld, for it can't be undone and became "IDE Memorex DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner (523216)AJ___NWK____\5&265FB54&0&000" MODEL - I got it on sale from Fry's Elec. - It seems that it was indeed a 1 way ticket - and it is time to retire the old work horse anyway - Quite happy with your products and getting me another. PS - I don't think the upgrade did any justus

I have a Dell Dimension 4550 running windows XP Home. I just recently purchased a new DVD drive(Sony Optiarc AD-7221A) and I can't get it to work. The first drive I tried was a Lite-on DVD burner, and now...


sounds like you have issues with your hard drive.  go to start>run.
type this in without the " "
"cmd", hit ok.  a black screen pops up.  type "cd.." and hit enter.  type in "cd.." and hit enter again.  type "chkdsk c: /f /r".  It will say the drive can not be checked, it is in use.  hit "y" to schedule a check at boot up.  type"exit" and reboot your computer.  let me know if this helps.

Boot a Sony DVD RW DRU-840A drive in DELL precision 530


Have you tried changing the boot order.

If you're trying to use it as a boot device you need to tell the system to boot the cd /dvd drive FIRST and of course you need to have a bootable cd / dvd in the drive.

Let me know if you're already tried this.

My DRU-510A ATA DVD-RW wont work with my pc it keeps saying that the registry is incomplete or damaged an keeps saying something about code 19


Maybe the registry was damaged because of a virus. You can go to www.dowload.com to get the drivers and install it again. If you know the brand of the dvd, you can go to their webside and check that code.

Cannot copy files to DVD disks


First of all you should have the recording tab ON. Have you tried burning using Nero instead of dragging and dropping? This may solve the problem.

However, if you prefer to drag and drop, try setting the write speed to a slower setting, even if the dvd burner has faster write capabilities.

1. I do not think it is a hardware issue.

2. You can try replacing the IDE cable, but if you can read the contents of the disk it does not suggest a communication issue between the drive and mobo.

3. I do not think that the burning software is to blame, when you drag and drop you are actually using a windows based burning software that is installed with the operating system.

4. set up your files to burn through nero, let the software do the work.

I had the same issue with my dvd burner, although slightly different error messages, solved it by using nero instead.

DVD Burner not recognizing blank dvd's of any type


I had the same problem with my Phillips DVD-R drive and FIRMWARE fixed it; but, it seems that Dell’s OEM version of FIRMWARE is not fixing your problem.
I just wanted to remind you to try LG version 1.05 but, it seems from the buzz on the internet that 4164B is having a lot of problems; you also might want to look into Dell’s version E112 rather than E113.
Try this before the firmware update:
1 – START; RUN; REGEDIT
2 – HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE; SYSTEM; CurrentControlSet; Control; Class.
3 - {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.
4 - After clicking this registry key, look at the top line entry in the right window pane. It should be default with a data value of DVD/CD-ROM drives. If it’s anything else, you have the wrong key and you need to check the next entry. Typically the optical drive is the first registry key.
5 - On the right side of the window, right-click LowerFilters and choose modify data from the pop-up window.
6 - Add Sonic's filter by typing PxHelp20 into the dialogue box and clicking OK.

You might want to see if they will move you to the 4166B; if you have it replaced again: or if you are sick of LG the SONY DRU-810A should fit.
