I'm not sure if this is in the right place.
My dad built a computer for me. I have an MSI motherboard and a WinXP Pro OS. I have 3 disk drives. 1 is a floppy, one is a CD-RW (which I have recently discovered, I thought it was just a CD drive), and one is a DVD-RW.
My DVD-RW has worked at one point, fairly recently too. I was able to burn with it. But just recently, I tried to burn with it, and encountered problems. I started looking into it. I discovered that now, for some odd reason, I cannot burn anything with it. I cannot insert a disk and view what is on the disk, and I cannot find the drive period. I've looked in My Computer as well as Device Manager. Apparently, to the pc, the drive doesn't exist.
So, I searched online for some answers, and found that I need to find the manufacturer and the model number and whatnot, go to the manufacturer's site, and download the driver. So I looked inside my tower. I got 3 separate strings of numbers off a little sticker on the back of the drive in question, and did a search for them. Found nothing. Short of taking the drive out of the computer, I cannot find anything else to point me to who the manufacturer is, and while I'm pretty good at software problems, the internal hardware of the computer is scary to me.
The three numbers I got off the back of the drive are as follows:
I have no idea if they even have anything to do with the drive. Any ideas?
