This is the Dell website driver area, under CD/DVD, you will find firmware upgrades and a driver. Look for the one that best fits your drive, download and run the program.

I really hope that this fixes your problem... If you have any more questions please let me know and I will be more than happy to help you further. Good luck!

My Phillips RW-DVD8801 does not see the CDs or DVDs installed in my dell Dimension 3100


Hello franchusyl
If possible , test it on another computer . If it does not work , it's defective and you will have to replace it if out of warranty .

Driver for dvd-r 8801 need a driver for dvd player windows won't recognise it


The drivers for DVD ROM drives are built into Windows and there is no download.

If Windows does not recognize th drive then it could be a hardware issue or possibly a BIOS setting is wrong.

Does the Windows Device Manager show an un-recognized device?

My xp computer suddenly stopped recognizing my Hp dvd1040e external writer -where do i get a free driver. hp website was useless.


I've found HP to be very helpful getting updated drivers, but perhaps not on this one. Have you tried a search with the model number (hp dvd1040e driver)? I found it at opendrivers. I hope this helps you.

Philips 8801 Drive Has Disappeared


Try this:

Uninstall the hardware in the device manager.

Restart and go into safe mode with GUI and networking.

Go into Control panel -> (Performance&Maintenance) System -> System Restore tab.

Save a restore point.

Go back to the last restore point.

Restart PC.

*If anywhere in the System panel you see a Dell restore/repair or Dell backup/revert icon, info, etc, that would be the way to go. Dell ought to have its own system self-repair buried somewhere on the harddrive that should be accessable through the control panel, start/programs menu, or in the boot/safe mode logon process.

Please reply if this does not help and I will continue to assist you.

Philips DVD +rw DVD 8801


I'd first try another burning programming to see if it works. if not I'd try the drive on a different pc to ensure its not the drive. if the drive works on another pc then i will reload the os and dell recommended if it doesnt works i'd returen if for warrenty if it has any or i'd replace the drive myself :)

Let me know what happens :)
