How can I get my laptop to recognize my optical drive? The hp website does not support this particular driver for some reason and it’s OEM. I have tried the removing of filters, lightscribe website, etc and am still unable to access or recognize it.

It does work, the light blinks and you can hear the drive attempt to run, but still no luck. I have also tried another drive, which did the exact same. It’s a HP DV9917, any tips?
