Please remove that link from your post. Linking to torrent files is unlawful here, just tell us what DVD you got, we will know what your talking about :D


And secondly, its called a "Driver". try searching on the forum or post your hardware so we can help you better.

goddammit, if you keep being a annoying sod, no one will answer your questions. Just go and search around in the forums, i aint gonna help you as u seem to expect people to help you, as if its our obligation. when u have searched the forums, searched google, and cant find anything, then ask
