Optical drives never require a driver when used in any Windows os from Win95 up. Windows XP provides native support that allows this drive to read a data or music disk and to burn a cd-r disk. No support for playing dvd disks or for burning dvd disks. For that task, compatible recording & dvd decoding software is required.

If problem is non-detection by the os, read on....

Simple solution:

Situation
There is a yellow exclamation mark for CD/DVD drives in Device Manager. The device status in the properties of the driver might indicate an error code, for example 32, 37, or 39.

Solution

To solve the issue, you have to edit the Windows Registry:
Click Start, then Run, type REGEDT32 and click OK.
Locate and then remove the following registry values:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlCl ***{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}LowerFilters

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlCl ***{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}UpperFilters




Close Registry Editor.
Reboot the system for the changes to take effect.

Note: Some programs are unable to detect the CD/DVD drive after these steps. To solve this, simply re-install the program in question, eg: usually your recording software. Also, in few instances the order in which the programs are (re-)installed can make a difference.

And here's another method that will do this automatically for you if you're afraid to edit the registry manually.

Hello,

I am having a similar problem with the HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4244N. However, there is not a yellow exclamation mark next to the DVD/CD-ROM drives entry in the device manager. Whenever I boot my system, I get a "new hardware" prompt that works me through finding a new driver for this device. (Note: I have a DELL Inspiron 2650 that came with a CD-ROM drive that I replaced with the above DVD drive). The device manager cannot find a device driver for the device and the add new hardware fails (consequently, the next time I boot, I go through the same thing again).

Also, under the properties of the device, I cannot choose an auto-run option for DVDs.

Is there anyway to get Windows XP to recognize the new device as a DVD drive and also to fix it so it stops prompting me with a "found new hardware" window?

Thanks.

It sounds like you have a hardware configuration problem. Did you jumper the new drive identical to the one you removed? and double check that you installed the cables correctly and securely? If you did, the new drive will be detected immediately during bootup.

Also please note: Windows does not notify the user of "new hard found" with optical drives. Windows is detecting something other than the optical drive.

It seems unlikely that I have a jumper or wiring problem. The DVD does work after I dismiss the "found new hardware" dialog. However, Windows XP thinks it is a CD drive, not a DVD drive.

If Windows does not notify the user of "new hardware found" for optical drives, then I can only conclude that it thinks the GCC-4244N is something other than an optical drive. Here is what happens when I boot:

A small notification window pops up over the task bar stating:

"Found new hardware
HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4244N"

[Quotes here used to set off WinXP text]

A bit later a window on the desktop appears stating:

"Found new hardware Wizard

This wizard helps you install software for

HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4244N

..."


If I continue with the dialog the found new hardware process fails. If I cancel the wizard, a warning message appears stating:

"A problem occured during the installation of new hardware ..."

Independent of whether I allow the new hardware dialog to fail or cancel the new hardware wizard, the DVD works OK, except, as I state above, Windows thinks it is a CD drive, not a DVD drive.

Don't take it for granted, check to see. It is very likely that your new drive jumpers don't match the old drive. How is the old drive jumpered? ie: master, slave, or CS? Does the new drive match?
