I have an HP dv1000 laptop, and have noticed that under My Computer, my CD-R/ DVD drive is no longer there. All I see is my Hard Drive, C. I went to the Device Manager option, and discovered that I am missing a driver for this device. I downloaded several drivers in BIN format, U300ELS and U301ELS, however I could not manually install them under the Troubleshooting prompt.When I go to install the driver manually, the option refuses to search the Desktop, where I downloaded the aforementioned drivers. I could not find an EXE type driver, and SFDWIN, which I got from Samsung, could not even find the drive.
I have no idea what to do, this drive was working fine for a couple of months, and it came default with the computer. Any help installing the missing driver is greatly appreciated.
