Qualified as a tech in what?
No drivers are required when using this drive in Windows XP (other than what the os provides and by compatible recording and dvd decoding software). Windows XP includes native support that allows this drive to read a data or music disk and to burn a cd-r disk. It contains no support for burning cd-rw or dvd disks or for playing dvd disks. For those 2 tasks, compatible recording and dvd decoding software is required.
eg: Easy CD Creator V5.x (or higher), Easy Cd & DVD Creator v6.x, Nero V 5.5.5.1 (or higher), WinDVD or PowerDVD

CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive appears to be missing after you install Windows XP

Hi!!!
I have similar problems with this DVD+-RW drive.
One day I tried to copy a CD and since then I cannot even read a CD.
As I thought the drive was broken, I bought another one, but when I installed it, the problem continue: but now I can read a CD (but not very well, when I listen to music it has some delays and stops) and when I play a DVD the image is good but the sound is very bad and it plays at a very slow speed. Also I can´t copy anything.

Any idea ????

Your question would have been more appropriate in the Tech Support section.

Please post your hardware specs. cpu, ram, video, and how much free space is available on the hard drive. Also, do you have anti-virus software installed?
