Legacy Plex Premium not recognized in Windows 7-64


I recently tried to install a legeacy Plextor Premium CDRW in a WIN7-64 equipped machine using a Sabrent IDE to USB 2.0 adapter.

I can’t get the OS to recognize the drive.

Do I need to install a copy of the plextor premium driver? I can’t seem to find one online, so a link or a push would be greatly appreciated.




have you tried the drive with that adapter on another computer? Perhaps there is a compatibility problem of the enclosure and this older drive.

Additionally, drivers for optical drives are part of the operating system. There are no manufacturer drivers.
