I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop with WinXP Media Center Edition 2005. When I bought it 5 years ago it came with DLA which enabled me to use drag-and-drop to burn CDs and DVDs.
Recently, the computer was damaged, which required me to reinstall WinXP and all the drivers. Since my laptop did not come with a reinstall CD, I had to use one from a friend, who also has a Dell with the same version of WinXP. I also reinstalled all the drivers from her drivers CD and the updates from Dell's website. I also ran all MS Windows updates on the OS to bring it up-to-date to WinXP SP3.
However, the CD/DVD drive now no longer support DLA. I would very much like to reinstall this feature which I found to be very convenient.
Dell lists the drive on the original configuration shipping list as: DVD+/-RW..., 8X, IDE (INTEGRATED DRIVE ELECTRONICS) ..., NEC
The computer's Device Manager currently lists it as _NEC DVD+-RQ ND-6650A, and that it is working properly.
Is there a way to reinstall or reactivate this software/feature, which came with my computer but which I lost in the OS reinstallation?
