most DVD drives are plug and play, just install it and windows should recognize it right off the bat.

do you want to play dvd movies on it? if so you need a dvd encoder which you can either pay for one or get VLC which is free and will play most dvd movies.

Windows Media Player will play DVDs without adding any drivers.

I can not find anything on the net under the model number DHM -16485 Are you sure you have the correct number?

Strangely when I googled DHM -16485 it gave one one hit which took me right back to your post here in bleepingcomputer.com

Therefore the model number you gave can't be correct.

As for burning software which is free try this link http://cdburnerxp.se/

<<Windows Media Player will play DVDs without adding any drivers.>>

Once the proper codecs are installed.

Anytime I've done a clean install and tried to use WMP out of the box...I needed to add a codec pack before the video function performed properly.

Most optical drivers dont really come with drivers as these all have stated-windows basic drivers run the full gammet, ive even had vista run 15 year old CD drives-software wise you need the proper codecs, movie watching software and burning software. theres several, I personally use and like NERO I find it to be very powerful tool-that being said the free stuff should work to. Roxio would be a good free movie watching software.

Yes you are 100% about the codecs, thanks for adding that hamluis!

But as far as drivers go, those were mostly needed during the Windows DOS days. Now-a-days most hardware is plug and play with-in Windows 95--Windows 7.

Ok so what we are looking at here TRelyt is finding the correct CODECS so your media will play correctly on your computer.

As you look for those beware of web sites that offer those to you for a fee or fake ones offering you viruses or malware instead.

I will post back after I check for a few good sites.

First I want to check out your DVD drive's specs under the model number you gave me.

EDIT: Ok I checked it out. It's an Artec 16X DVD drive. It came with a disk with this title printed on it CyberLink PowerDVD 5 Software. Do you have this disk laying around somewhere?

I just wanted to add.

I found a disk that I have which came with a DVD drive someone gave me that has the model number DHM-G48 on it. This device is very similar to yours and this software will work with your drive.

If you can not find your disk, let me know, I will try to provide you with a downloadable copy of the software.

This disk is entitled CyberLink PowerDVD XP 4.0 I can make an ISO of it freely as there is no copy-write restrictions listed in the EULA :thumbsup:
