Dvd/rw install to new vista machine

  1. I have an nec nd-2500a dvd/rw that I want to salvage and use on a brand new custom built vista rig. Went onto nec site for drivers and found out this is a model they no longer support.

    Never done this before - so,

    a) Is it feasible to use this dvd/rw from xp machine
    b) If yes, where do I find driver (Searched a few sites that come up with firmware but not sure what I am doing)

    Any help most appreciated.

    Just plug it in, Windows uses generic drivers for CD/DVD drives, there aren't drive specific drivers. And I wouldn't mess with firmware unless you have a specific problem.
