Hey, i recently got attacked by virus's and trojans so i re-installed my pc.

I can't seem to find my driver for my DVD/RW Samsung SH-W08A, now my drive does not read or write dvd's.

Can anyone advice me on where to get the driver for this, i had a look around and they all seem to be full of, well you know.

I want my dvd player and writer back...

Usually cd\dvd drives donĀ“t need drivers...check the cables connections or disconnect and connect them again...

I have, when i checked the current drivers, it is using standard cd/r drivers, cd's work fine, dvd's don't

It has picked up the correct model.

This is a regular ATA / ATAPI DVD drive. There are no drivers for it.

OK, it was me being stupid

I have a D drive and a E drive, one cd/rw and one dvd/rw, i thought my dvd was E drive, but it was the D drive, someone swapped my drives around when i wasn't looking.

duh brain, manic day.
