Optical drives never require a driver when used in any Windows os from Win95 up. Windows XP and Windows Vista both provide 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.

Fix #1:
If your problem is non-detection, ie: drive is not listed in "My Computer", please read post #24 in this thread: [url][/url]

It contains manual instructions on the delete the upper and lower filters fix, that will solve the problem.

Fix #2:
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.

Fix #3:
And here's another method that will do this procedure automatically for you if you're afraid to edit the registry manually.

[url][/url] (automatic fix, post #7, download file: Unzip the file, then launch it.

Fix #4:
Alternately, download and install the DVD fix from this Web site: [url][/url]

Download the file and save it to Desktop. Open an "admin" Command Prompt and run the .vbs file by typing the following at the console window:

wscript.exe "%userprofile%\desktop\xp_cd_dvd_fix.vbs"

Now, after performing this fix, don't reboot yet. Next, (in Device Manager), uninstall all optical drives listed (if none are listed, continue with next step)...

Reboot the pc. Your drive(s) should now be visible in My Computer and work properly.

Also, for optical drive problems in Windows Vista, read this [url=" uct=3752864&os=2093&lang=en"]HP web page[/url].
