Hello all,

I have problems finding drivers for two cd/dvd burners. They show up under device manager with yellow exclamation points. The burners in question are:
1. memorex dvd+-RAM 530L v1
2. DVDRW IDE 16x ( I believe it to be a Lite-on)

The computer is a Dell Computer Corporation Dimension 2400 running Windows XP SP3.

I have looked at a similar thread regarding one of these drives but was unable to solve my problem. So far I have tried uninstalling them from device manager and rebooting in hopes that plug and play would save the day and reinstall them. No luck. I also tried looking for the cd/dvd drivers on the dell website but did not find drivers for the burners I have.
Next I tried updating the chipset drivers, to no avail.

The drives light up and open/close normally. I've scoured the net for hours and I'm really at my wit's end. I would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.

Dell Computer Corporation Dimension 2400
Chassis Serial Number: JVK4941
Board: Dell Computer Corp. 0C2425 A01
BIOS: Dell Computer Corporation A05 12/02/2003
2.65 gigahertz Intel Pentium 4

Optical drives are plug and play and do not require drivers
Are both drives on the same connection?
Are the jumpers set correctly?
