Windows 7: Driver problems with win7 64bit, upgraded from xp 32bit

23 Nov 2010   #1

OS Name Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64bit
Driver problems with win7 64bit, upgraded from xp 32bit

I recently upgraded my Dell XPS400 DXP051 computer that was running Win XP 32 bit to a Windows 7 pro x64 OS, i did a clean install but am now having problems with my DVDRW drive recognizing discs. I have gone to the dell driver download page and gotten the recommended driver for my drive here. Though it is not compatible with 64bit systems.

What is a laymen to do??

Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated.
