Install HP CD-Writer Plus 8250i on Windows Server 2003

Calling all the smart ones! :)

How do I install a HP CD-Writer Plus 8250i on Windows 2003 Server?

- The drive is phisically installed and working (as CDROM so far)

- If I try to install the drivers from the CD it compains that it cannot find the drive (again, it is master on the secondary IDE and working, so I know it is there. It previously worked on Win2K)

- On the HP support page for this drive it does not mention this OS

- I would like this to end-up w/ me having the drivers installed and Easy CD Creator (which came w/ the drive) installed, as well as Direct CD funcionality.

Now it's your turn ;)

Well, you'll need some burning software that plays nice with 2003 to get it working properly.

There might be some free stuff out there, but I'm wary of what "extra" things get installed with freeware.

What version od EZCD is it?

I think version 6 and higher will work under 2003.

No need to add drivers - just install the burning software (that is compliant with w2k3).

Well, it is actually 5.  I'll have to check on the website if I can just download a newer version and use my existing registration - I never bothered to upgrade it because so far it "just worked" ;)

I'll check into that and keep you posted;

Nope, upgrading EZCD is not an option, as it costs $80 for the download version ;)
No free upgrade for existing customers ....

Yeah, way to go! The question was not answered and instead of deleting it, forced accept; and some wonder why EE is going downnhill ...
