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 or cd-rw disks. For those tasks, compatible 3rd. party recording & dvd decoding software is required.

If your problem is non-detection, ie: drive is not listed in "My Computer", please read post #24 in this thread: [url]http://forums.driverguide.com/showthread.php?t=21669&page=4[/url]

It contains instructions on the delete the upper and lower filters fix

Also, there is a STICKY posted in this forum that contains a file from Microsoft and instructions that will do this registry edit automatically instead of having to do it manually.


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

Code:

Alternately, download and install the DVD fix from the Web site below.

[url]http://www.dougknox.com/xp/scripts/xp_cd_dvd_fix.vbs[/url]


After performing this registry fix, just reboot the pc. Now your drive should be visible in My Computer and work properly.



Please state what the problem is and include some details for further assistance.

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. Or the drive simply does not appear in My Computer or Device Manager.

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.



There is also a STICKY in the CD-DVD driver request forum that has instructions on how to do this fix along with a file from Microsoft that will perform the fix. Please read the STICKY for further instructions. This thread: [url]http://forums.driverguide.com/showthread.php?t=30011[/url]

Question Re: DRIVER NEEDED: Optiarc dvd rw ad 7530b ata (Windows Vista)

Hi guys !
Have a optiarch AD-7530B dvd RW in my sahara laptop. The drive is detected but doesnt write anything. It reads though. Its a clean new drive so cant be anything other than some driver glitche.
Any ideas how to fix this ?
I am using XP.

What application/version are you using to attempt writes?

Do you get error messages? If so, what do they say?

Have you ever burned anything with this drive?

And what are you trying to burn? cd-r, dvd, cd-rw, dvd-rw, other?

And what kind of files are you trying to burn?

Jerry K's advice on
running the REGEDT32
and then editing the registers was huge for me so two "Thank you"'s to him.
About a year ago I spent and evening in trying to figure out why my Optiac DVD RW AD-7530B ATA DEvice
would not read the CD's I was putting into it. After hours of goggling, downloading and running applications, reading many of Microsoft's and MS related help sites, I stumbled across this thread. I was a little nervous changing the registerd values but I did, restarted the laptop and it worked. I can imagine I happy I was to solve the problem.

I write two thanks because about a week ago I went to load in a CD and the same problem came up. I forgot the proceedure but after a bit of googling I found it. For some reason the registered values went back to the initial values. I changed them and agian it's working. I think it's because I was really behind in loading in the laptops upgrades and in the process they must of put them back to the unusable values.

Tony
