This is my FIRST day here... I am working with a Dell computer about 5 years old... The computer will NOT recognize the cdrom/dvd combo drive after an update from Microsoft screwed things up.. The drive letter doesn't even show.. Under Device Manager it shows it as NOT installed.. Since I cannot install it from a cdrom anymore, I need to find the file that will INSTALL the combo drive for me.. I have looked til I am blue in the face..I don't want a program to search the hard drive and check all drivers, I want ONE DRIVER, that is IT !! I don't think a Firmware will do it either since it cant update what isn't initially installed anymore..Plus removing it from device manager wont work because I don't have my install cd anymore anyways. PLUS as I said it wouldn't read it even if I had it.. I am looking for the following: I am looking for the DRIVER for an XP machine for this: CDRW/DVD SM-352f That's it.. Can anyone help??? PLEASE SOMEONE HELP !! Thx again
