optiarc BD Rom BC-5500S

Where can I find the drivers for Optiarc BD Rom BC-5500S?  Mine hasn't worked for about 5 years now and got frustrated trying to fix this and wonder if someone out there can help.

I believe this is a European model BD drive.  Support and downloads can be found here -


Drivers are usually included with Windows Vista or Windows 7.  When you say it doesn't work, what specifically doesn't work?  Can it read CD or DVD discs?  For playback of Blu-ray movies, you need to have specialized BD playback software.  Windows doesn't natively support playback of BD movies itself.

Re: optiarc BD Rom BC-5500S

Hello, I got some promblem with my SVS15115FLB. For some reason my DVD-ROM show as "BD-ROM" in my computer, but the main problem is that it doesn't want to read DVDs but only Bluray Disc. 

I am using Windows 8 and it was working Ok since last update. I would appreciate some help.
