Hi,

I plugged in my Asus External drive into my Asus EEEPc. The utility reckonises the unit, but it is not supported. Are there drivers that will support it? the Asus website is useless.

thanks

Let me give a few particulars:

the CD/DVD external drive is ASUS; the drive is identified as INITIO SDRW -08D15W.

The driver is not supported, according to Disc Utility.

Are there any drivers that will be compatible for this unit?

What external CD/DVD player/burner will play nice with Ubuntu Netbook re-mix??

Thanks.
