CD-ROM installation "the data is invalid"
Posted on 2005-05-12
I am trying to get a CD-ROM working on an HP n600c laptop running Windows 2000. The o/s correctly identifies the drive and gives it a letter but it fails to work and the hardware list shows a driver error.
I have tried removing the driver and reinstalling: it goes through the wizard, I pointed it at the INF directory and it claims to find a newer driver. It says this has not been signed, do you want to continue - said yes and it then claims the driver failed to install as "the data is invalid"
I have tried refreshing the INF directory in case it was corrupted by coping across drivers from an identical machine but same result.
