I think ya may find the reason ya PC "Lost" the driver is because the DVD has faulted?

However if this is NOT the case simply Unplug ALL connections to the DVD, restart the PC, then shutdown... then re-attach the DVD Power & Data Cables... restart ya PC, "It" should thben detect and install the relevent "Driver" from it's own database.. ya should be good to go. If not then the DVD is Kaput sry.

Hope this helps

Do I need sata or eide for internal dvd writer on HP a1330n?


This model HP has a SATA disk controller.
You need a SATA DVD writer.
If you are not sure, when you remove the faulty DVD writer, take it with you when you go to purchase a nre DVD writer, make sure the new DVD writer has the same connectors as the faulty DVD writer.

I have installed a CD-Writer Plus and A Memomrex DVD Burner, now my cd- writer rom will not work but I can play music in my dvd drive


I noticed you mentioned in a separate note that your DVD burner is shutting down your system whenever you try to copy files, which makes me wonder if you know how to go about installing DVD or CD drives into a system. I'm also wondering why you installed both a CDwriter and a DVDwriter into a single system. Normally only a technican or a highly qualified power user would have their computer using two or more optical drives. I think the simpliest answer for the time being would be for you to completely remove the CDwriter from the system and then see if the DVDwriter can do the job it is supposed to do. The reason I say this is I doubt you have configured the jumpers located on the back of the optical drives so that they can both operate properly on your system. When you bought the drives, a small sheet of paper should have been included with the drives that would let you know how to configure those jumpers else confusion would be created on your computer and this confusion COULD lead to mis-idendification of the drives by the computer's bios and that could and probably would cause much of what you have described regarding the computer shutdown and inability for one drive to function.

Need new burner


if you have ide connectors (normally there is 2, 1 black, 1 blue) on the motherboard which you probably will have; purchase an IDE type one as you get the cable with them and use a power connector which you will have spare from your power supply unit as they are cheaper and easy to fit. See below for what to look for on your motherboard called IDE0 and IDE1
