Remove Via Bus Master Drivers

How to remove Via bus master drivers from XP Proff; Srv Pak 3?

This MSI DVD DH22A9P Atapi Burner burns fine to a CD but crashes with a DVD. The MSI DH22A9P burner works OK on a 2nd PC.

How to replace Via bus master drivers with Microsoft native IDE drivers?

Where is the firmware? I cannot find it on the MSI site? You think the firmware is the same as on another Vendor site?

Thank you for all you do;

But there is no need for that (unless you have a very ancient version installed).

This is likely not related to the IDE drivers. Perhaps something else like rogue copy protection “drivers” or similar.

Where is the firmware?
The firmware is stored on a chip of the device

Just like a motherboard Bios, the firmware of an optical drive is designed for that particular piece of hardware. If the manufacturer of your drive does not offer firmware updates for your drive, then you’ll have to stick with what you have.
