Re: DVD550s

It should not need drivers. What are you trying to plug it in to? Or what are you trying to do with it? You might need software to watch movies or burn DVDs but the drive itself should mount as a lettered drive in any version of WIndows since XP SP2 when you plug it into a usb port.

Is the DVD drive working? or are you looking for the drivers because it is not showing correctly in Device Manager?

This drive had a similar issue like the one below:


Why does my DVD Writer show in Device Manager with a Different ID


HP DVD Writer - Identifying the Revision dvd640 in the PC



DVD-RW 16X HP DVD Writer 640b Drive Firmware Update




If you have HP Support Assistant installed on the computer(The Blue Question Mark) then open it ==> Complete all pending Updates & Tuneups==> Restart and Check. It may solve your problem
