Answers :

Have you tried going to windows update and do the custom usually they go thru your comp and tell what drivers you need , there good about that usually it should recognize the letter designation my comp gives it right click that drive and check properties and see it there is any conflicts and check if you can get any updates on drivers for that burner can also try the website of the comp for updates could be an issue prob
Hi there 1st go to control panel and go to System there you will see your burner. Either try to update driver, if that does not work uninstall cd burner. reboot and it will install itself on boot up. If this does not work. go to the bios press f1 on startup and have a look there if it is showing up. It should work the first way I said.\015\012Best Regards Alex
