I have a Dell Inspiron - 530 running Windows 7 which has an Asus DRW-2481ST DVD-RW that quit working and Windows does not see it.
I changed it out with a new one, no joy.
I replaced the cable, no joy.
I tried the DVD software that came with it, "Device driver
was not successfully installed."
I removed the device from the Device Manager, no joy.
I search for a new driver in Device Manager, no joy.
Tried to install the driver using Asus utility and got the following message "No matched drive detected".
Also, the Device Mgr does see it.
