Re: DRIVER NEEDED: Compro (ACS) cdrw 4420-nb (Windows XP Professional) [USB]
There is no such driver for Windows. Optical drives never require a driver when used in any Windows os from Win95 up. Windows XP, Windows Vista, & Windows 7 all provide native support that allows an external USB optical drive to read a data or music disk and to burn a cd-r disk. No built-in support for playing dvd disks, avi or mpeg video files, or for burning cd-rw or dvd disks. For those tasks, compatible 3rd. party recording & dvd decoding software is required.
Any modern optical drive is plug and play in all Windows OS's beginning with Windows 95. Windows will automatically install this drive within 5-7 seconds of plugging it into a working usb port. Be sure the usb port is working (via Device Manager). If the drive is defective or has bad connectors or cables attached, it will not work properly and show no drive is present in My Computer.
