Driver issues? Installed new ones? Need updated ones?

Yeah; check the Company Website, download the drivers, and install them (most of the time it'll be in an instalable file). That should sort it out.

Windows version always helps.
Does the drive letter appear in My Computer ?
What does sysdm have to say [device manager] ? Use refresh.
What are you trying to use it for ?
Do a restart,see post on this.

i figured out what the problem was... this is kind of embarassing, but i discovered that all that was wrong was the cord came loose in the back of the burner.

Haha! Why didn't we think of checking around the back for loose wires? Going to have to add that into any explanation now just in case!

Nice to know its working at least.
