I am running Vista Home Premium on a Dell Vostro 1400 laptop. I have a internal DVD burner and I am trying to connect a external Lite-On burner via a USB port. When I plug the drive in, the operating system detects a device and loads the driver. But the drive does not show up. None of my programs recognize the cd drive other than the internal drive. Does the operating system need a driver for the external cd burner? I must be missing something. Any help would be appreciated. The cd drive is also not seen in the device manager.
