Need drivers for a Backpack DVD/CD-ROM drive please!


I have a Backpack from Microsolutions that is a DVD-CDROM drive.   My assistant says she lost the CD drivers.  Apparently MicroSolutions is out of business, or their website is down, or both.  I also found an Experts Exchange question where someone else was looking for this and the expert offered an FTP site.  I tried using this site, but got an error that it either didn't exist, or I didn't have rights to it.

I've tried dogpiling this, but get a lot of sites that no longer exist.

Does anyone know how I can get this Backpack working again?  We don't have the drivers and I tried the Windows "add new hardware".  It can't figure it out.

what version of Windows are you running?
If its XP then it should pick it up and install drivers automatically ,you will also need a burning software unless you only want to make data discs which can be done through XP CD writing wizard.
