BENQ DVD DD DW1620 drivers

Sorry all n00b here, I reformat my drive and lost the cd to my DVD burner, now I cant find the drivers. Its a Pacific Digital Mach-16 DVD-+RW/-+R/CDRW Internal IDE. I have tried everything I can think of, it does have the BenQ logo on the faceplate. I sent a Tech e-mail to PD and BenQ but no help. I got some pictures on a dvd I would like to recover if I can. Any info would help. Thx

What operating system are you running? XP, 2000, etc?

But it's more than that, isn't it? The most important things lie close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you've said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while saying it. That's the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a teller but for the want of an understanding ear. - Stephen King, intro to "The Body."

No drivers are needed to read cds/dvds. Windows XP has drivers for reading built in.

You don't need any drivers as they are integrated into XP. But you will need third party software (Nero, etc.) for burning DVD's.

Are you sure it's probably configured as master/slave? The connector on the end of the cable is master, with the middle being slave. Make sure the jumper on the back of the drive is set to the corresponding setting as well.
