You will need to install the software driver in order to make the burner work with the computer.
Normally the driver can be installed from and included CD or by downloading it from the manufacturers site - BUT there is a problem, Windows 98 drivers are almost NEVER supported with new software anymore. Chances are, you will have to locate a 3rd party site to obtain the needed driver.
If you provide the model number of the drive I MAY be able to locate one for you.

Hi menahills,
When you put a blank DVD in the drive and Windows automatically opens a program, X out of the program and start which ever DVD burning program you want to use, it will see the drive and blank DVD.
Nero is a good burning program for Windows. You can find it at: http://www.nero.com/enu/ but I'm not sure if they are still offering a free version
Some (free) Open Source programs that you might look at are:
InfeaRecorder at: http://infrarecorder.org/
CDBurnerXP at: http://www.cdburnerxp.se/en/home
DVD Flick at: http://www.dvdflick.net/
Hope this helps...

It doesnt read any dvd neither software nor video, but can read audio cds, vcds, and mp3s


Put a DVD disk into the drive.
Open "My Computer".
Right-mouse click on the icon for the CD/DVD drive.
Click "Explore".
If a window opens, then your hardware can read the DVD media.
If not, then you need to replace the CD/DVD drive.

Then, you need software, such as the _free_ 'VLC' software,
downloadable from the Internet, to play DVD-videos on your computer.

I need driver dvd-rom drd8120b


Do not need drivers with Windows XP. According to forum circa 2002, Windows XP Pro even supports the drive.
Drive when made was officially supported by:
Linux / Microsoft DOS 3.1 or later / Microsoft Windows 2000 / NT4.0 / Microsoft Windows 3.x/95/98
(No first hand knowledge)

I suppose your's is a SATA drive. Disconnect all the sata cables except for the Hard Disk and that of the Writer in question. Boot up and check if the drives works. If not take pains and try installing the drive in another PC (one of your friends'). If it still has the same problem check with where you bought it.
