Having problems with your Lite On PC Desktops ?

I just installed a slim DVD burner, model DS-8A1P-18C, on my Dell Inspiron 1300 laptop, but my computer doesn't recognise it. Now what???


Answers :

Sometimes the system will take care of finding drivers in the background and not let you know. (You can sometimes see balloons/small windows at the bottom right of the screen giving you progress.) That's probably what it did.

I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop with an NEC 6650A DVD drive. It has recently stopped working showing the following error message. "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware.
