This drive should be supported by ME's native drivers. Are you sure your problem is driver related?

I'm pretty sure that the DVD rom drive is missing a driver. In the device manager, the DVD rom is currently runing as a ordinary CD drive. It also said that the dirver for the drive was not avalible. I tried running a Gate Way recovery disc on the hardware drivers' section but it doesn't seem to have it. Yep. I'm sure that the problem is driver related.
Windows 98 and ME have no way of knowing whether the unit is a CD/DVD Writer/ROM. It will just claim that they are normal CD units. They also don't need any special drivers either.
This operation is normal under these versions of Windows. There is nothing wrong with your computer. To find out, load a copy of PowerDVD or whatever and put a playable DVD in.
