I have a ASUS 24X DVD Burner SATA Model DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS - OEM but when I try to install the drivers I downloaded from here http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=DR... it tells me "No match detected! This utility is only for ASUS DRW-24B1ST. 0-0-1-0 D:ASUS DRW-24B1ST c. 105 detected" Do I have to go in and change it's name or something and if so how? I made sure I have right version of Windows 7 64-bit

That's a firmware for the drive, not actually a Windows drivre. No driver is needed: Windows will detect the drive automatically. Look under Computer and you should see the DVDRW; if you do there's no problem and no need to install any driver. All you'll need is software to play back DVDs or to burn DVDs if you choose.

I am having this same problem with this same DVD drive, confirmed in Device Manager. The firmware says it's for "ASUS DRW-24B1ST drive". It then says "Detected Drives: 0-2-0-0 D:ASUS DRW-24B1ST i 1.00"

I AM having problems trying to playback burned DVDs of my wedding, burned on my old computer and play fine on my laptop. That's why I wanted to try and update the firmware, which is apparently 1.0 and this software is supposed to install 1.03

I've never had to mess with the firmware of a dvd-rom. They do wear down but they're so inexpensive (about $20 for a similar model to that) and easy to replace that I'd find it more practical just to replace the thing)

I suspect it's that letter - I have an Asus DRW-24BST *i* 1.00" which must be a later model than the one that has a firmware update and probably includes the updates. Still never fixed the problem with playing back burned DVDs though.
