    I have an "ASUS DRW-24B1ST c" DVD/CD burner running on XPpro with 4 g's of RAM. I tried to burn a DVD today and am getting an error message that the drivers are missing to burn the DVD. I don't recall there being an install CD/DVD that came with the drive when I installed it. SPECCY shows it as a DVD drive and is operating normal. It can read & burn CD's but can't read or burn DVD's. Any ideas?

    Hi Tim, here is the Asus page to download drivers, also you will see a "Knowledge" Tab on that page, some useful information and for trouble shooting on there as well as the usual FAQ's.

    http://support.asus.com/download.as...&m=DRW-24B1ST&os=17&hashedid=Xf3lRLd28V8de4YN

    If the drivers and the trouble shooting section doesn't help, it may just be the DVD head (Separate from the CD head) may be faulty. If recently purchased it may be fixed under warranty.

    Also Windows XP on its own does not normally support the burning of DVD disks and you normally require third party burning software, such as Nero or similar.

    Hi Tim. Further to Nev's advice.
    All you need is a dedicated CD/DVD burning program.
    Really doubt anything is wrong with your burner.
    An excellent Free burning program is IMGBURN which I have used for years.
    Has a brilliant "How To" section.

    Rather than drivers Nev's site is correct but drivers are native to Windows and have been for a long time, download the "firmware" as that can sometimes fix minor problems.
    That said these Asus dvd drives are cheap and cheaply made IMHO yet the name is a good one. Recently I find that I have been tossing many of these out early as the quality really isn't there
    and they do not last.
