I have a Compaq Presario Desktop 5000 series computer, 5012US to be exact, and I believe it came with a DVD-Rom preinstalled, I don't remember exactly, I was 11 years old when My dad bought it. Having quite a few restores with it, it seems to have lost the driver for the DVD player and the CDRW. I right click on My Computer on the desktop, and go to device manager and open the CDs, and it shows
"Compaq DVD-ROM DVD-115" and right below it
"IDE-CD R/RW 8x4x32"

I can use the DVD-Rom to play music cds, and Some program cds, but no home made file cds. I clicked on the DVD-115 and clicked properties, then went to driver, and clicked on update driver, but it says that C:\WINDOWS\INF\MSCDROM.INF is the driver, which I think is the default CDrom driver.

My cd-Rw will not open, either if I push the open button manually, or right click on F:/ and click on Eject.

How do I update, or install a DVD-Rom Driver, and fix the CD-RW that doesnt open?

Thanks A million in Advance.

Go into the control panel, double click on "System" then click on the hardware tab. Find the DVD/CD drive on the list, right click on it and select uninstall. Restart your system, then allow Windows to connect to the internet to find the drivers (if it asks). It may just install them via Windows which is fine.

See if this helps.....if not, let us know and I'll try to find some drivers for you and perhaps a firmware update :thumbsup:

Sorry for the double post but, I found a POWERDVD Cd, I had for another Dvd player, and I think it installed a driver for it, and it worked.
