DVD R/W is not getting detected on my laptop

Hi guys..
i desporately need help from you experts
i have a dell inspiron 6400 laptop ..one day , i found that the dvd r/w drive is not getting detected at all..when i saw the device manager , it showed an abnormal name for cd/dvd drive viz.- H + H DVD-ROM DVD-410B SCSI CdRom Device
i thaught that it could be becaust of virtual drive software present on my laptop , so i removed the software and found that the dvd r/w was showing some different name now..
i tried to install the wondows default drive for the dvd r/w , but couldn't
then i uninstalled the dvd r/w
my system configuration on dell.com tells that my dvd r/w is GH766 ASSEMBLY..., DVD+/-RW..., 8X, PHILIPS, SULLIVAN/TOBAGO...
i thaught that the problem may get fixed of i find the drive for this model of dvd r/w ..but i couldn;t find any drive for this model at all on the net
i don;t know at-all what to do ..
can you please help

Try to run a repair on your OS. What happened there was that your virtual cd software replaced some default drivers from the OS.


Hope this helps.

Most likely you need a codec. The trick is knowing which one you need!! So, some good folks have made packs which I have found usually meet the need. Try this one here:
