Optical drives never require a driver when used in any Windows os from 95 up. The XP os provides native support that allows this drive to read a data or music disk and to burn a cd-r disk. It does not provide any support for playing dvd disks... for that task, compatible dvd decoding software (like WinDVD or PowerDVD) is required.

Please state what your problem is and include some details from Device Manager, eg: non-detection, no record, no playing of dvd disks?

It is a Windows thing, losing drives when installing/un-installing burning software…

If the drives are still listed in the Device Manager, delete them then, carefully follow this fix:

"Upper/Lower Filters:

a. Click on Start --> Run --> and type in 'regedt32' followed by the enter key
b. Expand the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" key (looks like a folder) by double clicking it (or clicking the "+" next to it.)
c. Expand the "SYSTEM" Key
d. Expand the "CurrentControlSet" Key
e. Expand the "Control" Key
f. Expand the "Class" Key
g. Look for a key containing the following string of letter and numbers:
{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
h. Highlight this key by left clicking once on it
i. On the right hand side you are looking for "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" under the "Name" column, once you find these delete them by right clicking on them and choosing "delete"
j. Exit the registry by clicking on the "X" in the top right hand corner of the screen.

reboot and now your drives should work fine.

Thanks, and glad it worked for you. Very few members ever say thank you. When you do, that makes it worth while to help.
