Mad Dog 4-1 Problems

Hi guys im new here as you can tell by the name. Recently i bought a Mad Dog 4-1 cdrw/dvd-rom drive. Put it in and it only came with nero like 3 the shity one but i already have nero 7. I installed it anyway thinking drivers are going to be on there. I can play video games and it will read cd’s and dvd’s but burning is a different story. Everytime it goes to burn it fails some how i dont know how but it does i tried slowing the burning speed down from 52x to 48x and still did this. Can someone please help me? Idk if i need a driver for it or not.
