corrupted driver for HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4163B

Need help on where to find a driver for a dvd burner

dvd burner model HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4163B

I have a powermate ml7 series n80001 computer that has literally just had its warranty expire and now its telling me the driver is corrupted for the dvd/cd burner.

Does anyone know where i can download a driver that will replace the corrupted one? I have a cd with drivers on but its not much use if the drive is buggered!

Re: corrupted driver for HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4163B

A driver is not needed. All drives work with a standard
Which app tells you that the driver is corrupted?
Try to reinstall Nero.
And, by the way, don't mix up driver with firmware! The firmware is a piece of software on a chip in the drive. If the firmware is corrupted the drive wouldn't work at all.
I'm a 太陽誘電の記録メディア fanboy. Stick to it and you most likely won't have any trouble (with degradation or compatibility and write errors).
Preferred media codes: CD-R 97m24s01f; CD-RW 97m34s24f; DVD+R YUDEN000 T03; DVD-R TYG03; DVD+RW MKM A03; DVD-RW MKM 01RW6X; DVD+R DL MKM 003; DVD-R DL I avoid that format
