    I just installed a Memorex CD RW/DVD Rom in my computer, I need the driver for the DVD player...the CD rom works fine...I've searched everywhere but can't seem to find the driver for this specific model: 48MAX 244816AJ

    Thanks

    welcome to OSNN!

    Have you tried memorex support? Always a good idea to get an email in there while you are looking around..... Hopefully someone here maybe has one, though they sound a bit rare - roughly what "vintage" is it?

    Are you sure it is a driver you require, and not a dvd player?
    DVD ROM drives don't normally need drivers.
    How does your problem occur?

    if the cdrw part works then you dont need a driver. I have yet to come across a optical drive that needed a driver installed.

    The driver for the drive is installed by Windows automatically. If you can use it to burn cd's then it's working. My question is what are you using (software) to try and watch a DVD? You will need a software DVD player in order to watch a DVD on your computer just as you need software to burn a cd on your computer.

    nah, actually thought my cd-rom stopped working for a year, then my friend had the same thing but he was like slam it in, thats the only way it works, and thats true. weird, compaq and hp suck, my sisters laptops had her battery die, then her charger die, then her lcd screen backlight die, then the laptop, stupid basstards, they better give her a replacement

    i was once ripping a dvd and the damn fags, made it scracthed on purpose so u couldnt rip it, so then i just put it in my laptop and started rocking my laptop like a baby carage and it actually worked for a while until it reached a really bad place on the dvd
