    I have a NEC CD-RW NR-9200A cd rom drive and I want to update the driver. I tried going to the NEC web site but could not find the drive listed and for all the ones I looked at they ask for a CD to put in the drive and install. Is there anywhere I can download updated drivers for the CD drive? According to the computer info the provider was Microsoft in 7.1.2001 and the version is 5.1.2535.0. I'm following this path because my drive is acting erratically or not at all but with some programs it works perfectly well.

    No drivers are need or required for those devices. The OS and motherboard support them natively. Companies stopped making drivers for them many years ago.

    You may be able to find updated "firmware" for the drive that increases the number of supported formats or speeds.
