I am getting a message that there are no MCI device drivers installed on your system.  Double click the Add New Hardware wizard in the Control Panel to install MCI Drivers.
I have been unsuccessful trying.  What can I do?

Lancer, you'll probably receive better responses if you assign points to your questions. Best regards,

Start as you have but at the second screen answer NO.
That will bring you to where you choose the MCI devices of your choice.
Just running new hardware won't install MCI

The answer from smeebud was probably alright.  But I do not know what I must choose in the Control Panel, Add New Hardware to install the M.C.I.

Question is What do I load?  I don't recognize any MCI devices.
How do I find out what my system uses. ( I have an M71 IBM Aptiva)
Sorry I am not really as knowledgeable as I should be on this, but I do need a more expanded answer.
MANY THANKS

Here it is in details:

2.Click Next, click No, and then click Next.

3.In the Hardware Types box, click Sound, Video, And Game Controllers, and then click Next.

4.In the Manufacturers box, click Microsoft MCI.

5.In the Models box, click one of the drivers from the manufaturer of you card

6.Click Finish.

7.When you are done installing devices, click Yes when you are prompted to restart your computer.

This will install the needed MCI drivers for your media control panel
