Hi, I am contemplating buying a second user cr re-writer from the ebay auction site, but most of the auctions say that the drivers and manual are not supplied with the drive.
Are the original drivers for the drives essential or can you just stick it in your PC and let
WinME do the rest?
Or alternatively is it easy enough to get any drivers from the manufacturers website?
Thanks for any help, Boon.

Normally the generic windows drivers will work fine.
If however they don't. then it is easy to visit the manufacturers website and download the drivers from there.

Dont know the specifications or price of the machine you are looking at but you can get a new cdrw from about £45 including Nero burning rom.

Is it worth going second user unless it is less than a tenner?

It won't require a driver for reading - all CD-reading is handled by built-in Windows drivers.

For CD-Writing you need an application program - Easy-CD Creator, or the like. Unless you have Windows XP, which has basic CD-Writing capability built-in.
