Swopped a dvd drive between desktops, thought windows drivers were sufficient in the previous machine to install the drive but appears not in the present desktop and now cant find accessible source of drivers to install the dvd drive any ideas anyone please ( trying to avoid annual membership deals to these driver detective offers you see offered.

Optical drives rely only on the generic drivers that are supplied by your chosen O/S if the drive is not detected it may not be connected properly, check ide and power cables...

Also check jumper settings

If you want to use an on-line prog, Drivermax click here has a free version that I've used several times (the freebie does make you wait 15 secs each time with a nag to buy, but it does work).

As sharpama said check the jumper settings on the back of the drive, you may have two drives on Master/Slave. Windows has drivers for all CD/DVD drives within it, you certainly don't need to look for drivers.

BTW I think it was on the latest PCA DVD there is Ashampoo burner a program I have used for some time & which I feel is the best out there. If you want it & don't have it I can post it to you.

Driver Max
I use the free version and its enabled me to get all the drivers for my Advent after the recovery partion failed and I had to install a new copy of XP. The main restriction is only 2 a day with the free version but you can get a 30 day one for about £6 which will allow unlimited downloads.

Hi,thanks for all your replies, I found that I had forgot to change the jumper from slave when it had been the second dvd drive to master as it is the only one now installed-thanks to sharpamat, Matalan and inputoverload. Have started to use the drivermax prog-thanks to oldbeefer2. Input-what does the other program on the ashampoo disc that you mentioned do, is it driver recovery as well?.
Thanks for coming to the rescue, all :), this forum never lets you down when you have a problem-thanks.
