I purchased an external cd dvd burner off of ebay and it is not recognized on my computer do I need to get software? I don't see a brand name anywhere on here and am trying to burn a cd.

You should be able to do basic burning with only the OS.

What do you mean "not recognized"?

Does the OS find the drive and assign a drive letter? Can it read a commercial disk?

If not, the drive might be defective. Try it in another computer.
