Matshita UJDA360 CD-RW driver issue

I have an issue with the CD-ROM device driver, and can't get Windows to reinstall it. It'll "uninstall" the old driver, but when you get it to check for hardware again, it just loads the drivers it had before and then of course still does not work.

I need to force it to reload the drivers from the XP CD or find some online source for them. How do I do this?

(I can't find any UJDA360 specific drivers anywhere, so I assume it just uses the generic CD-ROM drivers)

Can't you just try to install drivers manually? Or reinstall the driver for the device? If you start this process it has to ask you at some point to browse through the list with compatible drivers.

I removed all CD devices in safe mode, rebooted, and nothing. Windows goes through the regular process of supposedly installing the device, but when it's done the device has an error.

Windows doesn't ask for a driver location when installing the CD drive, it's loaded from somewhere stored. I'd like to force it to load from somewhere else, since obviously this version is corrupted or something.

There has to be a "reinstall driver" button in the device properties. I suppose you can do the process manually from there.
