Killed my Mom's DVD ! Need some Help

Well, I installed my video capture device on my Moms computer and for some reason it killed the driver for the DVD-RW device. According to my hardware manager, it is a Lite-On DVDRW LDW411S . I haven’t been able to find a driver anywhere on the net for this device, just firmware upgrades. I dl’ed a generic cdrom.inf file but I cant get to it from my control panel, it looks like a text file from there. I lost the audio drivers, too, but I was trying to get the DVD RW device going. Any suggestions?

Welcome to CD Freaks :slight_smile:

What’s your operating system? CD/DVD drivers aren’t required in XP.

You could try uninstalling the drive from Device Manager, then restart the computer from a total power off. This forces the OS to reinstall the drive using the original drivers.
