I don't see any driver above (as you indicate). All I see above is an optical drive brand and model.
Optical drives do not require a driver other than what the OS provides natively. Windows XP provides automatic support that allows this drive to read a data or music disk and to burn a cd-r disk.

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 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 procedure automatically for you if you're afraid to edit the registry manually.

[url][/url] (automatic fix, post #7, download file:

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


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

Loaded the vbs rebooted, but no luck! I disabled the drive in hardware, restarted went into safe mode, Uninstalled the drive out of frustration.
When I rebooted the system again the drive reloaded and started working??
Ok nobody sneeze!
