See if you can go to either the computer manufactures website or the DVDs
website and find a driver for it. It appears the driver is either corrupted
If you got the drive with your computer, try that computer manufactures
website first. if you bought and installed the drive yourself see if you have
a disk that came with it or check the manufacture of the drive website.
