You don't NEED CD burner drivers. You only need software to use with the burner.

The only drivers utilised by Windows are the IDE bus mastering drivers, and those should be obtained from the motherboard manufacturer. the only potentially useful downloads available from the drive manufacturer are Firmware updates, and those should not be used unless there is a problem which they are specifically designed to correct. Most Burner problems are the result of the way software programs have been installed and uninstalled on the system.

The only exception to this is if the drive is to be used from DOS, and in that case DOS drivers are available for download. They are not needed and should not be installed if the burner is to be used within Windows.

What Windows version is being used here, Angela, and what CD Burner software is installed and/or has been installed in the past?
