I'm new here and just lost the first attempt to wrie this.
Like "Doc fixit" I need drivers.
I had an Optorite DVD CD RW DD0401 writer installed in my computer. The technician was never able to get it to work. Using Microsoft Fixit diagnostic program it was diagnosed as Not Windows compatable "incapable of writing a Cd , The drivers were corrupt, The filter drivers were corrupt, It had been disabled by Windows, It did not have an assigned Letter.
I got an exterior DVD CD writer and plugged it in and it works. While i like the idea of having an interior device I also have a question concerning both of them . They both use the same drivers # 5.1.2535.0 from 7-1-2001 supplied by Microsoft
These are in a "SYS computer made by Via Technologies Inc. Model VT8601
I'm using Windows XP Professional with service pack 3
Motherboard is Biostar with Intel ® Pentium ®111 CPU
1133 MHz , 1.13 GHz , 760 MB of RAM
One final question, Is there a way to find and get a Windows "compatable " driver when you don't have the installation disk and Optorite does not have a home page to contact them. All help greatly appreciated.
