CD writer installation in Windows 2000

By Quentin Smith ·
I have just purchased an Aopen 1232 cd writer installed as per instructions installed the software and the software does not find the drive and there was no drivers that came with it for any OS and I have been to the manufactures web site. they donthave any drivers on the site for windows 2000 pro
The drivers that windows 200 installed for the drive was cdrom.sys, redbrook.sys, stroprop.dll.
Does anybody know how to setup the CDwriter for windows 2000 pro?

Generally the software that comes with the Acer CDRW is by Adaptec. Check the version number, if it is 4.02x or earlier, it will not work on Win2K. You can go to www.roxio.com and download the upgrade to vers 4.03a and install it and that should fix your problem.

All of the CD-R's i have seen run off a firmware chip in them. Most manufacturers have the firmware update on there site. If you can nott find the drivers there try
www.Driverguide.com and set yourself up a free account it will be helpful in the future as well. Also www.ntcompatible has a list of devices that are comp. with W2K
