Question about ASUS SDRW-08D1S-U USB 2.0 Slim External DVDRW with Cyberlink Software - White Burner

1 Answer

I am having difficulty with my ASUS SDRW-08D1S-U external optical drive. My computer is an ASUS UL30A notebook with Windows 7. The strange thing is that it was working initially, but now a few days later, it stopped working for some reason. If I go to My Computer, I can see my harddrives (C and D) listed, but not my optical drive. If I go to Control Panel, and click on Devices and Printers, I see my optical drive listed under Devices as SDRW-08D1S-U, with a small yellow triangle icon with an exclamation point on it. If I double click on it, and then click on the Hardware tab, it states at the bottom ? ?Device Status: Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing.? If I click on the Properties button, it basically says the same thing, with the addition of: (Code 39). I have tried updating the driver, and it states that I have the appropriate and latest driver. I have tried disabling and enabling driver. I have tried right clicking on the icon and Troubleshooting. Finally, I tried uninstalling the driver. And then when I plugged the drive back in, it states that the ?Device driver software was not successfully installed.?

In the device manager, right-click on this device and select "uninstall". Physically remove the device from the laptop and restart your system, the driver will be loaded again upon restart.
The above should solve your problem. You should also download and install latest BIOS and drivers. You can find them here.

I need the fuckin driver or software or whatever for the sdrw 08d1s-u external burner thing. my comput3er will not pick it up!


Don't bother. Asus externals **** ****. I had 4 of them. After so many hundreds of burns, the laser or the motor drive starts to choke and makes coasters - but worst of all - takes 10 effin minutes to load a cd. Took them to the 17th floor of my office and whipped them as far as I could. They fly pretty good.

If it is a USB device, it will be compatible with Windows 7.
