Why does my lenovo insist on my having a cd rom when i have a dvd writer installed? how do I fix it so that computer recoognizes it?


I have the same situation. My computer has a
DVD-RW/CD-RW installed yet when it is empty, the computer simply recognizes it as a CD drive. However, it will automatically recognize any DVD I place in the drive. Even a blank DVD-R. So it's not really a problem for me.

Also, if you type in DEVICE MANAGER in your windows search area, it will show you all your computer's hardware and peripherals. I have Windows Vista 64 bit and in device manager it does recognize it as an ATAPI DVD under "DVD/CD-ROM DRIVES".

I haven't seen a DVD burner yet that won't play or write cd's; maybe this is standard.

I wouldn't worry about it as long as it performs the functions (play/burn DVD's?)

Hope this helps.8a17955.jpgb9e40e6.jpg

Installed Toshiba Samsung CD-RW/DVD Drive does not work


You will have to install the drivers that came with the drive. If you don't have the CD that came with it to install the drivers, you will have to search the Toshiba site for the specific model number of the drive. You should be able to download and install the drivers from their website. Hope this helps.

I have a 5 month old acer laptop that came with a dvd rw doudle layer disc burner.... this is what it says when i find discription in the computer.... 6.0.6000.16386 version driver# signed by micro...


You have to manually download the latest drivers from the Manufacturer and then point Vista where it is when the New Hardware wizard tries to install it.

Or your best bet is to go to Acer's support site and download the Driver for your DVD drive.
