There's usually no need to install any third party driver for your CDRW drive.

Once you install it on the system, Windows should automatically detect and install the appropriate driver for it, unless your version of Windows is very old.

To use it's basic feature (writing) you will need to install some writing software unless you use XP, in which case basic data writing software in inbuilt.

Regarding your post, I think you mean the driver is for DOS only (which makes sense, as Windows shouldn't need one)

you missed the bus here.

there is NO windows driver. there is a DOS driver which 99% of the time you don't need.

i assume you are having a problem with the cdwriter. it would be better if you simply posted whats is or isn't happening with it (and details of software used etc).

Do you have the original CD that came with the CDRW??
Usually Nero or similar. The USB drivers should be on that.
