    It doesn't need a driver - Everything you need is included in Windows.

    You probably are having another issue, but firmware is a possibility.

    .BIN is most likely firmware. You'll need a firmware update/flash utility. Your manufacturer should really have instructions about how to do it and what you use on their website.

    .BIN files are normally binary files used for CD images or firmware. In order to update your firmware with the bin file, you'll need to search the website you got the software from for a flash utility. Normally you'll need to copy both the .BIN file and the flash utility to a DOS floppy and install from DOS. Check the website though as some manufacturors are becoming hip enough to flash from within windows.

    What software are you using to burn your CD/DVDs?
