JonnyTub is right, the device should use a generic driver which is built into windows. If you're having a problem with this device please post back so someone can help with details of whatever its doing/or not doing.
Sorry - don't know if this is how I should respond, but here goes. The dvd cd bits play films and music ok, and it lets me record pictures to cd, but when I come to open them I get a message that the format is unsupported, or that the disk is blank! I have tried differnt brands of disk and used both R and RW formats. Thanks
Bit of an oddball problem this one, right click on my computer and select properties, from the new dialogue box, select the hardware tab and then click on device manager. You will see an entry called IDE ATA/ATAPI CONTROLLERS, expand this entry and you should find two more entries named primary ide and secondary ide. I'm guessing the dvd/cd drive is installed on the primary so right click on the primary ide controller entry and select uninstall. When windows has finished uninstalling the primary ide it will ask to be rebooted, oblige and allow windows to reinstall the drivers upon reboot.
P.s. I often see people being advised to uninstall the cd/dvd drive on it's own, a bit pointless if there are conflicts from the ground up so to speak.
