How do install a new device driver?

  as400man 19:20 31 Jan 03

My CD Rom has failed due to a corrupt/missing driver.I have found a new driver but when I take the manual options to install it in device manager I just see a list of driver objects not folder/file details.

How do I get XP to see the new driver in a temporary folder on my c: drive?

I just have the cdrom.sys file not an install.exe file for the new driver.

Right click on cdrom click update driver
instal from list or specific location/click next
click on browse button and find where you have temp file

I did as you suggested but although I can browse to the temporary folder I do not get the option to click OK - it is greyed out, I just get cancel as an option.

Have you tried removing cdrom from device manager rebooting and see if it picks it up.

You do not need a driver for CDrom it's installed by windows, and if it's a CDRW by the software you got with the burner

It just re-installs with the bad driver. I have tried moving the temp folder to SYSTEM32. Now I can select it but it says it cannot find the .INF file (Device information as XP says).
Any ideas (and many thanks for your interest this far)

So in XP you need to go back to a restor point, If it's a burner remove the software and reinstall

What model is the cdrom

No restore point to go back to with a working version of the driver. I don't use the CD much and I clear restore points until I know I'm going to do some fiddling.

Is it a writer or just plain CDrom
