Please excuse my ignorance but I would appreciate any help on my problem.
I have installed an ACER CDRW Drive to my Compaq Presario 5116EA but whenever I try to copy or burn any file to it, it fails with 'Drive(s) could not be initialised' message so it is not recognising it. Do I need to download a specific driver or something? However I am trying to keep costs down and every checker etc I download expects me to pay up. I wouldn't mind if I knew it would fix it but I don't.
Frustrated by that, I have removed that drive and connected an external DVDRW but it is not being recognised by my PCand doesn't show the drive in explorer.
It is a DVDRW USB 16X USB DEVICE
