Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Need to find correct driver to reinstall.

\015 I accidentally removed my Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-K16RS ATA device. How do I reinstall the driver?\015

Answers :

Optical drives never require a driver when used in any Windows os from\015\012Win95 up. Windows XP provides native support that allows this drive to\015\012read a data or music disk and to burn a cd-r disk. No support for\015\012playing dvd disks or for burning dvd or cd-rw disks. For those tasks,\015\012compatible 3rd. party recording & dvd decoding software is required.
