    Drivers are built-in to WINDOWS if that's the OS you are running. W98,ME,W2K,XP that is. What you need is burning software. What came with the drive?

    Hello Marcy,
    I,ve just bought one as well. I'm running winows XP. I installed the RAM driver (which came with the drive) and the drive installed with no problems. The driver XP uses is 5.1.2535.0. I've burnt DVDs using Ulead movie factory SE (This software came with the drive) and also burnt data DVDs with Ahead Nero 5.
    Can you see the drive under device manager ?

    Although the drive works fine I noticed that the data transfer is PIO rather than DMA. This isn't a big issue but I would like to get it to run in DMA mode if possible. If you do find any updated drivers (I must admit i haven't found any yet !) then please post these

    Thanks and good luck
