Downloading CD Drivers

  hobarth 13:43 08 Oct 2010

I am trying to download drivers fora Phillips Cd driver (external)
Every time I go to any website to download drivers I seem to be asked to download a driver search and after installing this cannot seem to find the drivers anywhere.
They do not download from websites

All the drivers required for an external CD/DVD drive are built into windows from XP to Windows 7.

What if any error messages are you getting when you connect the drive to your PC?

The error message is one requesting either a disk or a place to look for the driver.
I realise that the drivers should be built in but they do not appear to be.

It is a Phillips external CD drive. It is a Phillips SPD3000CC. I have the manual.

Scan hat download for virus and malware before attempting to install as that site has a poor reputation with WOT (Web of Trust)
