Maybe you should phone them or E-mail them about a Driver - most sites have drivers for their items as Support.

to roll back a driver what you do is goto device manger and click on wateva u want to check and click on the drivers tab
My DVD-Rom and CD-rw drivers are missing they may of been deleted and i tried to download new drivers but they dont install
You can't dl drivers for this kind of device,sorry
Send me the link.
Thats impossible,unless YOU screwed up.Start over.

I can't beleive that,roll back,give me a break. told you that ?
Click on whatever you want,
no wonder you have problems.
So what does "roll back" mean ?
And once again now that i know.XP detects all cd drives and needs no more drivers etc.
I think you have done too much unnessary fiddling around,admit it .

You can never do too much fiddling!

But Bluto does have a point; somewhere in the fiddling something went wrong. Drivers for DVDs and CD-RWs are all on Windows; just roll-back the drivers or uninstall them and wait for Windows to automatically install them again.

Good luck.

Thanks as i don't know a lot about XP except it is very good at "plug and Play devices like this,so i repeat.
Stop looking for "drivers" Get XP to recognize your P and P device.
Go to Install new hardware.

i found that file and did it and it configured it itself and then the driver installation worked fine but for some reason it still dosnt work so all i can think of is that the driver is buggered and i got that 1 from pioneer so im out of ideas so i'll probably pay someone to fix it so unless any ideas

thanks to everyone that tried to help
gracias, origato, terima kasih and wateva

Yeah; do the simple fix-reinstall in the XP Install CD Options when you boot from it.

Xp does not need mscdex,that's old Dos history.
When it did the install disk would write something like this to your Autoexec.bat file.
LH/L:136340D C:\cdrom\mscdex.exe/C:mscd001
mscd001 is the name of the driver.
This is history man,start over.If it's warranted take it back.If you bought a package then this post is hard to understand.
