1. I transferred my dvd from another computer because that computer is not running but nothing would come up on the screen. I placed exactly where the old CD was, but I don't know why it's not working. No drive showing on screen.

2. My sister informed me that I should go on line and download the drive. I have DVD Empress dual 16x. Unfortunately I can't find it on the website. Any suggestions?

Please reply.

Hi jara_matu! Welcome to Geeks to Go!

If you are running Windows XP, it should install the drive for you automatically. Therefore, you won't need to download drivers for it. If you can't use the drive at all (try using out of Windows environment - can you boot with it?), then it's in need of replacement itself. Optical drive failures are common, but fortunately they are cheap to replace. You can buy a new DVD Burner for under $30.

Cheers :)

Also make sure that the jumpers are set right on the CD/DVD-ROM. If its just the drive then it should be Master or Primary, if another drive is attached then it should be set to Master and the other drive to Slave.
