GEAR licenses our CD/DVD recording 'drivers' to many companies to add CD/DVD recording capabilities to their software products. This driver interface provides the connection between their software application and the user's operating system and hardware.
Note: The GEAR drivers are signed by Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility, therefore are completely compatible with Windows Vista.
To ensure your recorder works with the GEAR 'drivers' we recommend downloading a fully functional trial of a GEAR Software product.
If you have lost or do not have recording capabilities within your GEAR Powered Product after upgrading or installing, please download and install the latest GEAR drivers (below) for your system.
Solutions to common issues with GEAR Powered Products are available on this Knowledgebase Article.
