And I did. Just plugged it in and started burning away... No problems at all. But Nero won't recognize the fact that it is supposed to support Lightscribe. That's actually the only reason I'm browsing for something in a driver, 'cos the rest is working nicely...

You do not need any device drivers for this drive to work, you just connect to a USB 2.0 port using the usb cable or a USB 1.1, although this is a little slower. The software that is supplied with the writer is burning/authoring software programme, so you would have to download a free cd/dvd burning programme(just do a google search) or purchase one. Nero burning software is supplied with the unit, but as for playing dvd's you have windows media player for that.

LOST DRIVER CD.


Hi,

If you don't know the drivers for your motherboard.

Download DriverMax from drivermax.com that software will tell you what drivers you need to update and provides the links, there is also an unidentified driver section which will identify devices that don't have generic drivers installed and it will tell you what it thinks the device is and supply the driver.

If drivermax fails, you can download www.belarc.com/free_download.html (Belarc Advisor) it will run a scan of your computer and tell you what your devices are, from there hopefully it will give you more detailed information of your device drivers that will lead you to finding the correct ones. Most importantly it will tell you your Motherboard model and number which then you will be able to search for those drivers online.Hope this helps.

Kind regards,

Oliver.M
