home computer: installed win 2000 after formating and can't re-install burner driver
Posted on 2003-03-16
I recently got a new computer and installed win XP instead of the win ME version I got it with. After installing the HP CD writter I had on my old win 98, I found XP did not support it's software. I installed win 2000 pro instead (re-formated the disc and all) and win 2000 installed the drive with some generic driver. I tried uninstalling the drive and getting it to install the driver from the HP installation CD (I tried both from the regular CD drive and from the burner) but the wizard (my computer>properties>hardware>device manager>disk drives>properties>driver>update driver) kept reffering me back to the Microsoft generic driver that came with the win 2000 installation.
How can I detour this driver and install the one I got from the manufacturer?
