Hi ibaccalo, "Update the Driver / Software!"
"Go to this "Website!"
Fill-in necessary information.
ie: Model #, Brand, and or Operating System...

"Select the [Drivers] you need from the "List."

"Download the Drivers!"

    This 'comment' is for FixYa! So my understanding is; -10 is {subtracted} for "Not Helpful: Solutions!" But! When the "Solution is Very Helpful! = 5 or < LESS!" ? Is this "Correct"!? I have another ?Question? Do a number between a (100 to 1000) people respond quicker, and more to "Solution that do not help!" In comparison to the "Solutons that do?"

Hello, The DVD/CD-RW drive should be plug and play, meaning it shouldn't require a specific driver (uses generic plug and play drivers). It should "just work". Try re-booting the laptop and check to make sure you hear the drive spin up as the computer comes on. If it does then that means the drive is receiving power and is mechanically functional. Once it boots up, if you still can't use the drive. Do this: (make sure you are connected to the internet first) Start >My Computer > "right click" on Computer > "select" Manage. In the Computer management window select "Device Manager". in the list you should be able to select DVD/CD drive. it should reveal your model specific DVD drive. "right Click" the drive and choose properties. Go to the driver tab and select update driver. if it doesn't find any updates, try uninstalling the driver. Rebooting and windows should find the new driver on start up. if it doesn't then go back in the the drive properties and choose update driver. Good luck, Nate

you may need to check to see if you have a CD writeble Rom, open up the computer to see if the cd rom cord is in all the way. I would put a DVD rewriteable in the computer new ones come with the software. you may need a driver. www.download.com
you may only have a CD rom, and you need a CD writer to burn songs. A DVD writer can burn CD's and DVD's
