Question about Computers & Internet
I just had my computer's windows xp re-installed due to a virus that made it stop working.
The company kept my music and important documents but I did have to download a driver for my printer since that was missing.
My cd-rw drive is not working. I assume I need a driver but cannot find one anywhere. I have only found 1 answer but it's telling me to copy the downloaded file to a cd. But the cd-rw drive doesn't work so I can't do it.
Do you know what I can do to get this to work again?
The device manager says it's a "Sony CD-RW CRX215E5".
I've been searching for about 9 hours straight and I can't think anymore. Please, can anyone help me?
THANK YOU SO MUCH....
There are several different types of CD burning software, Windows own built in, OEM, Retail and free.
I never use the Windows burner, no reason just choice. The OEM burning software is specific to the CD burner it was supplied with. Retail should work with any CD burner and the free ones tend to be a little hit and miss.
I don't know what type of CD burning software you have (oem or retail) but maybe somewhere along the line the wrong software has been installed.
A few people I know recommend DeepBurner which is free, you can download it here:
Quite honestly if you cannot get your CD burner to work any more I would simply replace it, they are so cheap these days and require very little knowledge to change, it might just not be worth the effort of messing with that one.

Here is a link to the firmware.
This should help you if the cables are connected correctly.
