How do I replace my Asus DVD recorder's corrupt driver. I know the recorder works, as I have 2 OS on my computer. Suddenly though, on one OS, my recorder isn't recognized. I've tried updating the driver but am told I'm using the latest driver. In which folder do these drivers reside?
Thanks.

have you tried going into device manager and uninstalling - rebooting windows to the OS that is a problem and then allowing that OS to refind new hardware and install again

It wouldn't matter if you knew where the driver was. You couldn't install it even if you had it.

No drivers are needed for optical drives, so make no attempt to install or replace them.

What makes you think the driver is "corrupt"? What does Device Manager say about it? If it is error 39 try this:

1. Click on "Start" button, the click on "Run".

2. Enter "regedit.exe" and press "Enter".

3. When regedit starts, open up the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/system/currentcontrolset/control/class/
{4d36e965-e325 -11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}.

4. After clicking on {4d36e965-e325 -11ce-bfc1-08002be10318} you should see two settings on the right-hand side:
"upperfilters"
"lowerfilters"
Click on each of them, press "Delete" key and click "Yes".

Or you can download this reg file to do the same thing.

Use CDGone Variant if the other didn't work or you once had Roxio, but use the other one first.

Thanks for the help, yes I did uninstall but it didn't reinstall on restart.
The reason I thought it was a corrupt driver was from the Device manager message, 'Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)
I used the fix you suggested & it works fine now.
Thank you very much.

Sometimes error messages are wrong, too. The only thing you know for sure when you get one is that something is wrong, no matter what the error says.

It would have been helpful if you had included that error message in your first post.

Thanks for the followup.
