Set it to search for the driver automatically, unless the dvd drive came with a disc.

if it came with one, the driver should be on the disc.

try this site if you need to find the driver. itll ask you for the type of product and the model number, and probably the operating system.

Sounds like a problem with Windows XP; but it could be a lot of things. Can you remember if you installed any software or Windows updates just prior to this? It's possible that one of the Windows DLL's that interfaces with your burners is missing or corrupted.

I would do these things to troubleshoot:

1. Try using System Restore to restore the computer to a point before your burners stopped working.

2. Check the burner manufacturers support sites to see if anyone has had this problem. They may have a link to a file (DLL) that you need to replace.

If both burners are visible in My Computers, but you just can't burn, then I strongly suspect that a Windows DLL file is missing or corrupted.

Hi Aparina

Make sure that the DVD Writer is not Vista and Xp only. Alot of the new hardeware will only work on XP/Vista. Also make sure that you have the latest drivers installed on your computer, very important.

Lite On LH-18A1P DVD RW

Copywrited DVD Movies require that an MPEG software DVD Decoder be installed on your system. Windows doesn't include any because of their Anti-Trust violations and court issues.
(not to be confused with other media players, and DVD players that are included with DVD Movies, such as HOTLLAMA, and Interactive - you still need a DECODER. This is a throwback to the early days of PC DVD ROM's that required a HARDWARE MPEG DVD DECODER be installed, usually in a PCI slot, and connected to your video card through the VESA expansion connector. Nowadays, the hardware is built into the DVD unit, but it still requires a software decoder to operate).

Every DVD ROM or Burner comes with one...usually "Cyberlink PowerDVD", and now Nero's included one in their bundled OEM package.
Any version of any one of these will unlock the "DVD Movie" features for all media player installed on your PC.
[oops, almost forgot, you need Nero 7 or better for Vista. Any Cyberlink should work for you].

If you don't have one, try borrowing one from anyone who's got one. You can also go the P2P route, and download one, if you're so inclined.
Good luck, and I hope that fixes your problem!
