Dell DVD Driver fix for Windows 7

December 8, 2010

Todays minor annoyance was found when trying to burn a CD from iTunes after upgrading to Windows 7.

My DVD+-RW (Optiarc AD-7580s to be exact) was not recognized by my system, at all.

The Dell provided firmware upgrade would not run as it would not recognize the drive (and I didn’t think it was a firmware thing anyway). There were no drivers to be found, even after scanning a handful of sketchy ad-laden driver sites.

Eventually I arrived at this page, and a quick registry edit later I was on my way, burning up a storm.
