Well find out the company who made it. And try going to their website and find a update to the drivers for your model. If you cant you can buy a Dvd Player/Dual Layer burner for 60 bucks look for NEC (getting one for Christmas ).

Download the newest firmware for your drive. Get it from your manufacturer's homepage.

You can still find my Azureus Download Guide here

By all means, make sure to read this.

Maybe someone could tell him where to look for the drive's model (I'll try but the translations will be guestimated)

Right click on My Computer --> Properties--> Hardware --> Device Manager --> DVD/CD-ROM devices. Write down the model and the brand of your drive and post it here.

I think I found the firmware update you need.
It is for a LG DRD-8080B though but I think that it's the one you need because
a) google would only show LG firmwares in conjunction with the model
b) I don't think that Compaq is a manufacturer of hardware; they just build complete systems

If you are unsure if that is the firmware you need, don't upgrade (it's not too risky but still...)

Get it here when you want.
