    I'm having big problems with both of my optical drives:

    1) TSST Corp DVD+-RW TS-H553A original drive in my Dell E521.
    Currently it won't work at all - wont recognize any disk placed in carrier.

    2) Lite-on DVDRW SHM-165S6S
    Recognizes audio cd's, data cd's and dvd movies, but fails to recognise dvd recordable disks.

    I can't seem to find a driver for either in case that was the problem.

    Don't know if the info is also required, but graphics driver is ATI 2dvag (6.14.10
    6618) - 256 MB Radeon X1300pro.

    I would really appreciate any help.
