: I've been looking for the CD-ROM driver for this for a week now, and it'd be great if I could find it. Otherwise, I have a CD-less computer, and that sucks. Someone please help me out if you know you might have a copy of this driver or you know where to find it at. THANKS A LOT
There are no Windows XP drivers for your 48x internal ide cd-rom drive. Windows provides native support for all ide/scsi drives of recent manufacture. If you are having a problem with non-detection, then you possibly need to update your firmware. If your using this drive in a Dell computer, you may also need updated firmware. This updated firmware is posted on this Website (The firmware Page moved to http://www.firmware-flash.com
Other factors that may cause non-detection include the following:
1: Improperly connected ide ribbon cable or defective cable/connectors.
2: Master/Slave jumper not set correctly.
3: Problem with the ide port to which the drive is connected or wrong ide drivers installed.
4: IDE port is disabled in bios.
5: Improperly flashed firmware
6: Defective drive.
