Windows 7 does not see my dvd writter it sees a cd rom

Even though it's a DVD drive it just shows as a CD-Rom. When you check in system info it will appear correctly go to Start - Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Information - Components - CD-ROM. You will see that as Media Type it will say DVD Writer there.

Need the correct drivers

Dvd/Cd Rom/Writers don't need a specific driver, their necessary drivers come with all the operating systems available. The only thing you can do is, update the windows or repair the Windows.

If you need further help, let me know with more details.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My cd dvd-rom can't read cd's or burn cd's

If it is working correctly, it should read both CD and DVD disks.

If you have a "combo" drive (DVD-reader and CD reader/writer), it should burn CD disks.

If it is not working correctly, spend $40 to buy a replacement CD/DVD reader/writer.

I have lost my cd rom driver and pleasse tell me how to chekch which driver is appropiate for my cd rom drive n from where to download the driver

You should not need any driver for a CD/DVD drive, these drivers are built into windows.
If you are having trouble with the drive, try going into device manager, uninsatlling the drive, and let windows reinstall it.
You could also check the drive is fitted correctly, if in a desktop, check power and date leads, if a laptop, take the drive out and refit

Acer dvd driver missing acer ferrari 400 dvd uj-845-c

CD/DVD drive drivers are Operating System generic drivers and need not to be installed explicitly. The CD/DVD drive drivers are installed along with the Operating System and can be reinstalled automatically at next restart, if missing.

Check in the Device Manager under the "CD/DVD drive" category if there is any device listed there and having exclamation mark. If there is any exclamation mark visible beside the CD/DVD drive name then right click on it and restart the Computer.

Restarting the Computer will reinstall the CD/DVD drive driver thus causing it to work normally.
