new laptop cd rw driver queries
Hi - I have installed a cd-rw drive in my laptop, and I'm looking for drivers. (It's a teac cd w224e, if you have one please send it! It's difficult to find. Windows doesn't seem to have drivers. When I put this drive in the bay, the computer didn't say 'new hardware detected'. When I go to install new hardware, the pc won't see it, and there's no opportunity to select a cd drive. The drive spins a disc and the light flashes, but nothing appears in My Computer)
My other query is this: I wish to return this computer to it's factory settings using a reload cd supplied by the manufacturer. If this wipes everything, it will then not have the drivers for the cd drive. Won't this then be a problem for this process?
