Where Can I Download Matshita Windows CD-ROM Drivers?

First off, make sure you understand the Matshita name game. To wit, "Matshita" is really an abbreviation of "Matsushita", which is the Japanese company that owns Panasonic. So don't be surprised if your "Matshita" CD-ROM drive needs a Windows device driver from Panasonic!

Identify Your CD-ROM

To obtain the correct up-to-date Windows device driver, you're probably going to know exactly who made your CD-ROM and which model number it is. One way to do this is to look at the Windows Device Manager. Exactly how you locate the Device Manager depends on what version of Windows you're using (and even how it's configured).

You would typically open up the Windows Control Panel and start the System applet. Under Windows 95/98/ME, you would then click on the "device manager" tab to see the Device Manager. Under Windows NT/2000/XP, after you start the System applet, you want to select the "Hardware" tab and then press the "Device Manager" button. If you then click on the "+" beside the icon for your CD-ROM, it should display the make and model of your CD-ROM drive.

Finding Matshita CD-ROM Windows Drivers

Once you know the make and model of your drive, you can start Googling for the up-to-date device drivers.
