  1. How Do I Find My DVD Drive's Manufacturer?


    In both BIOS and Device Manager, the name is HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GUC0N. When I searched the internet I couldn't find any useful information. In Device Manager, when I opened the driver's Properties dialog, for manufacturer it said, "Standard CD-ROM Drives." When I searched for that phrase, all I found was a 2006 Microsoft webpage which said that that phrase means that I need to go inside a folder which doesn't exist and edit a file which File Explorer can't find. I gather from the article that there's probably an error somewhere, but I don't know how to resolve it or what I can do instead.

  3. DVD drive missing after upgrading to Windows 10

    Since upgrading from Win7 to Win10 my DVD Drive is missing. It apparently didn't come with everything else when I upgraded. How do I find it now? Can I uninstall Win10, go back to Win7 get the DVD drive and reinstall Win10?

    Original title: DVD Drive

    unless you've changed it yourself, then most likely its made from whoever made your laptop. Look up your model on the web.

    I believe the DVD drive is made by Hitachi.

  6. Thanks. Lenovo told me to download a program called Nero. The download was problematic; I'm too tired to go into details. Anyway, now that I've installed it, as soon as I finish scanning for malware, I should get the information I'm looking for.

    Thanks. I'm not quite sure whether I need more burn software than I already have, but I'll check it out when I have time.

    It's a nice tool and I think it's better than Nero.

  10. Well Nero told me that the drive has every capability a DVD drive can have, so now the quest for video recording software begins.

  12. Thanks, but I tried the Hitachi site already. The only information I could find there was a claim that they make DVD drives. Nothing useful whatsoever. Anyway, like I said, Nero told me what I needed to know about the drive, so now I just need to find appropriate software.

  14. Thanks. I didn't know about ASPI and ASAPI, but Nero already gave me the drive info I was looking for.

    I don't know if ASPI and ASAPI is still needed in Windows 7 and newer OSes. As for Nero, Nero has a utility called InfoTool that should tell you everything which is more than the burning software will ever do. Also, make sure you have the latest firmware for the drive which is what the rpc1.org site was for.
